The Saturdays - 'If This Is Lady Love' Modjo mash-up
I love a good mash-up. I also love those ever-delightful Saturday girls. And in this dizzying, melting pot of a thing we call pop, throwing a bit of everything into the mix can quite often bring about the most surprisingly satisfying of results.
After hearing the Saturdays mash-up mix of their debut single If This Is Love on tour, I've become a little obsessed with tracking down some 'extra' version of it that exists beyond the bootleg live footage recorded by fans on pocket cameras during the live shows.
And so I came to stumble across this little number of YouTube - It's The Saturdays' If This Is Love mixed with Modjo's No. 1 hit Lady from the turn of the Millennium. Quite simply amazing. It's every bit as spacey and disco-tastic as the version they performed on tour, a fitting tune for any New Year rave-up occurring over the coming weeks!
Of course, what needs to happen next is for this mix to be then combined with this one (Moves Like Lady Jagger) for something of universe shattering proportions. When the Saturdays performed their very own mash-up on their On Your Radar tour, it was one of the undoubtedly highlights of the show - the hope now is that, in some format and by some means, the mix gets an official studio release.
(And speaking of the Saturdays, how amazing is the above photo - taken in 2007 before the release of their debut single - though it looks for all of the world like they've taken a trip in the TARDIS back to the mid 90s... Pop at its most colourful and brilliant)
