Postmodern intertextuality in contemporary popular music: mashups

Within current popular music culture, we witness the interesting phenomenon of “mashups” – a composition created by blending two or more songs that often involves an overlay of the vocals of one song over the instrumental of another.

Mashups are an obvious and beautiful example of what postmodern theorists mean with intertextuality. Thanks to a clever technology, you can now hear, see and feel intertextuality in your web browser. Listen, look and party here! Enjoy!
