Missing Link Mash-Ups: New Motown Remixes

As a Motown fan, I've always been curious as to what each song would sound like without instruments or vocals. So I used Original Artist Karaoke, which are a series of Motown karaoke CDs. They contain the 5 song with original vocals and instrumentals, and then they have the same tracks, but this time they can be seperated into instrumentals and acapellas, if you have the right software (AUDACITY!!). So, using these instrumentals and acapellas, I created new mixes of the songs, or "mashups." These mashups have both voals & instrumentals, just vocals, and just instrumentals. For example, in "You Can't Hurry Love", you start out with the original song. Then it switches to just instrumentals. Only a few tracks, though, have only acapellas in some parts.

If you still don't get the idea, download this package and give it a listen! :)
