Attempted Mashup

There is a certain train wreck quality to this, but...

Now that you've heard the concept, how about someone with some real mashup software and musical ability stepping up to bat? Boskers, does this give you enough to go on for a jazz improvisation?

(Note: The total audio is only 2:10 but for some reason when I uploaded to blogger, there's all this additional silence on the end. Oh well, it was my forth attempt, the other three failed, so I'm just going to leave it as is.)



Medley challenge anyone?

I've got an idea for a Christmas medley. Not necessarily Judy Garland meets Jimmy Durante, but something like this:
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light

Make someone happy
Make just one someone happy

From now on our troubles with
Be out of sight

Make just one heart the heart that you sing to
One smile that cheers you

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
make the Yule-tide gay

Love is the answer
Someone to love is the answer

From now on all our troubles will
Be miles away

Once again as in olden times
Happy golden times of your
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all
Will be together
If the fates allow
High a shining star
Upon the highest bough
And have yourself a
Merry little Christmas now

Make someone happy
Make just one someone happy
And you will be happy, too.
I can kind of imagine it, but can it really be done and work? Well if anyone wants to give it a try I'd love to hear what you come up with. Moreover, perhaps the secret to having a happy holiday is to keep it simple or "little" and take delight in those small, one-one-one opportunities when you make someone happy, just "one someone" even if only for a few moments.

p.s. Is this even a medley with just combining two songs, or is that something else?
