Kick off your summer weekend with a BRILLIANT new Van Halen mashup video, just released today!
This is the third amazing Van Halen mashup created by our favorite mashup artist, Bill McClintock. He was the one who did the Van Halen & The Jackson 5 – ‘Mean Machine’ and Kool & The Gang Vs. Van Halen: ‘Celebrate With the Devil’.
Music used in this mashup, ‘Beautiful Shining Star of Superstition’:
Van Halen – Beautiful Girls, Running With the Devil
Earth, Wind & Fire – Shining Star
Stevie Wonder – Superstition
The creator, Bill McClintock, resides in the Pittsburgh area, cranking out mashups that have received universal praise. Here’s an excerpt from an interview with him:
“I’m a big fan of 80s rock music. I started doing mashups as a hobby after I heard (and was blown away by) the Crazy Train/September mashup by DJ Cummerbund. I was so intrigued by the way that two songs could be combined to create something that seemed entirely new.
Making music mashups came somewhat easily to me, as I have a background in music theory from majoring in music technology and music education at Duquesne University. I was able to find songs that could work together based on key and tempo.
For my day job, I teach elementary and middle school music. My middle school students have enjoyed watching some of my mashups!
