Mash Up Monday - Fergie vs Avril Lavigne

To get Mash Up Monday back into the Monday routine, I thought I would feature 2 songs that I do not like, mashed up into 1 song that I do like! This is the power of a good mash up.

The mix is between Fergie's "London Bridge" with Avril Lavinge's "Girlfriend" to form "Girlfriend Bridge"!

As I said, I am not a big fan of either song in their corresponding original forms, but I do (for some unknown reason) like this mash-up.

Further to simply posting this song, I would just like to provide a visual aid to any non-UK citizens to explain why "Going down like London Bridge" just doesn't make any sense.

Firstly, I present Exhibit 'A':
London BridgeLondon Bridge

As you can see from this photo, London Bridge is of a flat, solid nature and does not at any point raise up or down!

Exhibit 'B':
Tower BridgeTower Bridge

As you can see, this is a lovely picture of Tower Bridge. This is NOT London Bridge and is perhaps a better reference for "going down". Tower Bridge also features heavily in the Fergie music video, fuelling this misunderstanding.

Anyway, with the rant over, please enjoy this week's mash up:
