"Familiarity is the common thread of this mix. Though your guests may not recognize all of the songs, these songs will have a familiar feel due to a liberal use of recognizable samples.

Jenn Cuneta’s “Come Rain Come Shine” incorporates Paul McCartney & Wings’ “Silly Love Songs”. Simply Red’s “Sunrise” samples Hall & Oates “I Can’t Go for That”. Mylo’s “Doctor Pressure” mashes up his own dance track “Drop the Pressure” with a forgotten Miami Sound Machine single. Rihanna’s “SOS” borrows heavily from Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love”. Dannii Minogue’s “Don’t Wanna Lose This Groove” is a mash-up of her own “Don’t Want to Lose This Feeling” with Madonna’s “Into the Groove”. On “True Love, Pt. 2”, punk band X references a dozen or more classic and oldies rock & roll tunes in just over 5 minutes."
