The Gang Bang Theory - Madonna Vs Nancy Sinatra


Robin Skouteris has teamed up with Pat Scott and their collaboration is The Gang Bang Theory which mixes Gang Bang by Madonna with Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Nancy Sinatra and also uses music clips from You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi and Bodies by Drowning Pool. The video for The Gang Bang Theory is by Panos T and it mixes scenes from Kill Bill with Madonna's video for What It Feels Like for a Girl

Regular readers of this blog will know how much I love the work of Robin Skouteris but his work really is at it's best when he collaborates with Panos T. Both of their editing skills just gets better and better. I always feel like the music artists were in the studio together when I hear Robin's mixes and likewise with Panos T he is just a wizard at what he does. They never do what might be the obvious thing to do and that's what makes them brilliant.

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) is one of the all time best pop records. It's was orginally recorded by Cher in 1966 and Nancy covered it in the same year. It's just timeless, her version is beautiful in a wonderfully dark way. Robin has used Madonna's songs in several of his previous mixes but I think this is one of his most creative to date.
