A Song a Week 52: The Nemesis – 2010 Mega Mashup

Here we are, January 28, considered by many to be the official end of 2010. I recently went back and re-uploaded all the songs that had been hosted on Virb, so you can now listen to every song from 2010. If you don’t have time for that, here they are all playing at once.

The Nemesis – 2010 Mega Mashup by thenemesis

I knew I needed to do something special for my last 2010 song, like how the first song introduced the project. When I heard that someone did a mashup of all of Billy Joel’s greatest hits playing at once, I knew I had to try it with all my 2010 songs. There was such an amazing mess created by 18 songs playing at the same time, I had to know what 51 would sound like. I half expected it to just be a solid tone, with each song filling in the empty space at various points. It’s not quite that… it sounds more like static at the beginning. Since I have so many short songs, you can notice as songs drop off and the remaining songs get clearer and clearer, until it’s just The Hitmaker Algorithm – Sad Song Redux for the last 45 seconds. I considered fading it out after a few seconds of only one song playing, but decided that would be cheating.
So there we are, 52 songs in 13 months. So where do I go from here? 2011 will be about albums. tow knee chavez has plans for two albums this year, we’re going to collect all the Bad Felt songs to date into an album, and I’m going to try to finish an albums’ worth of punk covers for the Hitmaker Algorithm. Maybe I’ll put together a “Best of 2010” album for the Nemesis? Maybe I’ll finally put the finishing touches on the Nemesis EP I had planned to release last year? I would like to keep recording Bad Felt songs. Maybe not quite once a month, but at least somewhat regularly. Hopefully I’ll finish at least one song a month to keep updating this blog.
