This 'Mr Brightside' & The 1975 Mash Up Will Make You Come Outta Your Cage

"Coming outta my cage and all we seem to do is talk about sex..."

Is there a better song in existence than 'Mr Brightside' by The Killers? That tune works in every single situation, whether it's the end of a wedding reception, a drunken night at karaoke or the hat-throwing bit of a graduation ceremony.


There's no way you could make it sound even better unless you, I dunno, mashed it up with The 1975 or something...What's that? Somebody did exactly that?

Well, we better have a listen then!


The track comes courtesy of YouTube user Inanimate Mashups who previously posted a similarly themed Years & Years/The 1975 double-header that was equally banging.

In fact, the tracks are actually taken from a whole album of The 1975 mashups entitled The 1975 Versus... featuring Matty's vocals expertly edited over tracks by Twenty One Pilots, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Rihanna, Lorde and many more.
