Everything But The Girl vs Maroon 5

Ben and Tracey from Everything But The Girl.

I was just thinking how awesome an Everything But The Girl vs Maroon 5 mash-up would be like, specifically, one that combined “Missing” and “Moves Like Jagger”.

Well, with the internet being what it is, someone has already beaten me to it!

Presenting to you, ladies and gentlemen, “Missing Jagger” by mashdoctor:

It’s not quite what I had in mind – the focus seems to be on the melancholy of “Missing”, whereas the version I can hear in my head is a bit more upbeat, because it places more emphasis on the whistling of “Moves Like Jagger”.

But I’m starting to like it, especially the intermingling of the “And I miss you” and “Moo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooves like Jagger” bits.

Go listen!
