So for the second day in a row I got an email music submission. This time it is a remix of "Black and Yellow" conveniently named "White and Blue." I think it is funny timing because SCOPE is announcing their Spring Climax concert next week. Dating back to December I've heard rumors of SCOPE trying to get either Kid Cudi or Wiz Khalifa for climax, but I'm not saying either of those are going to happen. I'm a big fan of Cudi and I don't mind Wiz, so if it is hip-hop I'd be happy with either of those options.
Anyways, these types of remixes have come out of the woodwork at UNH for years now and as UNH's student blogger I feel it's my duty to share them whether I'm a big fan of them or not. As for this one, I've never liked auto-tuning and this song has been remixed hundreds of times already so their isn't much on the creative side. However, it does have several nice references, such as UNH shutting down hockey player Mike Borisenok's original t-shirt design of "Puck Maine" for the White out the Whit game. I don't see this getting the attention that "Party at UNH" got and I think "In da Mub," which came out before my time at UNH, is still the top dog in the UNH remix category. The Ke$ha's Tik Tok remix is still the lowest on my scale.
Stay classy, not UMassy.
