The earworm DJ/producer duo known as The Hood Internet has been doing their mashup thing for quite some time now, which isn’t in any way a criticism, considering how everything they release is generally a banger. For proof: here’s their recent summary of 1979, their history of hip-hop, and this weirdly catchy fusion of Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar.
To further their already impressive CV, the pair has now released a massive amalgamation of 50 songs from the bygone year that was 1985. As one would probably expect, there’s a helluva lot happening in the track, which features artists like Prince, Run DMC, Huey Lewis, Aerosmith, Dire Straits, and Madonna. Check it out below to be transported back to a simpler time, when all we had to worry about was mutually assured nuclear devastation instead of a deadly global pandemic.
It’ll be hard to top this one, if only for reminding us that Eddie Murphy’s “Party All the Time” exists and that its music video is a sight to behold.
