It Just Works: "Northern Soul"

The beauty of mash-ups (the art - and it IS an art - of combining two songs to make a new one) is that when it works, it can be filed under one of two categories: There's the hilarious, where two (or more) songs that shouldn't belong together are combined for comedic effect.  See "Beyonce Vs Andy Griffith" or The Freelance Hairdresser's "Marshall's Been Done To Death" where Eminem was combined with several childrens' TV theme tunes.

The second category is "it just works" the combination of two completely different songs that gel beautifully, almost as if they belonged together.  Check this out; Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" Vs Nick Drake's "Northern Sky".
