Part of the Song a Day Project! Also part of Transformative Songs Week in honour of the OTW March Drive.

Another approach to combining source works is the mashup, which often take the form of vocals from one piece together with the instrumental track of another (though many variations exist!). Today's mashup mixes the vocals from Metallica's Enter Sandman with the instrumental from Bryan Adams' Run to You. Particularly given Metallica's history with copyright enforcement, it's interesting to see people interacting with their output and producing something new and different out of the combination.

Mixing and remixing works like this, creating something new by interacting with our culture and combining works — this is another reason I support the OTW.
