One song to the tune of another

The Man in Black
The Other Man In Black
MashUps: regular readers will know I'm rather partial to them. The Number One Son, on the other hand, can't abide them; that said, he does rather like that one where Hall and Oates get jiggy with Metallica.

I think he may like this one too. As with a lot of them I put up here, this one's been out a while but I've come to it late. Ring of Smoke (see what they did there?) is very clever, not least because they've dispensed with that riff: you know, the one played by the (other) man in black - the one they don't allow you to play in guitar shops. And yet it works. Perfectly.


  1. I'm very partial to a well executed mash-up too - and this one's a doozy.

  2. This is tremendous, it's got me laughing out loud!

  3. Yes, both well executed and tremendous. I wonder what Funky Claude would have made of it?
