Musical coincidence # 316

I’m a fan of British musician Paul Steel and most of his musical incarnations. (There are four* that I know of. I don’t like one of them.)

One of Paul’s alter-egos is Pop, and one of his Pop songs is “Transistor Radio” which contains the following melodee:

Pop – “Transistor Radio (2011) (excerpt)


That sure sounds familiar to me…

Kool & The Gang – “Celebration (1980) (excerpt)


If Paul doesn’t mind too much, I’d like to put ’em together and see how it sounds:

Pop / Kool & The Gang mash-up



Here are the full versions:

Pop – “Transistor Radio (2011)

Kool & The Gang – “Celebration (1980) (excerpt)


(*Paul Steel, LL Cosmonaut, Cold Crows Dead, Pop – and you can hear them all here.)
