Whataya Want From Me


Today I finished something that I've worked really hard on and that I am really proud of.
I mixed a mashup of Pink's newly released song Whataya Want From Me with Adam's recording of the same song.

A little history on the song...  Pink wrote and recorded the song, but it didn't make the cut onto her CD Funhouse. It was sitting on the cutting room floor for a while until Adam Lambert made his way onto the scene.  Pink must have saw something in him, because she handed the song over to him to record a version of it for his debut CD For Your Entertainment.

About a year later, and after the song gained mainstream success due to Adam Lambert, Pink decided to include her version of the song on her Greatest Hits CD. In my opinion, it blows Adam's version out of the water. You can hear the pain and emotion in her voice -- more so that Adam's. She owns that song.  Saying that, I thought that it would be really cool to hear a mashup of the two versions of the song.

Here is the song streaming for your listening pleasure.


EDIT: RE-UPPED.
I've posted the song around, and have been asked for a download link, so you can download the song here:  http://www.mediafire.com/?8ufqi15tul81h24

Well yeah Pink is definitely an established superstar, I love her, she's always amazing. But I also really love what Adam Lambert did with the song too, it feels like it has a different meaning with him but it's also really powerful. A friend of mine posted an acoustic version on her wall that he did for NRJ in Berlin I think, and it was really moving.

I don't know why I'm surprised how good their voices sound together, though, it just never occurred to Pink, I hope he takes it, because they sound fantastic together.

Would rather have Adam's version. But Pink is good too. Awesome job on the mixing. You should be in that biz.

While I disagree about Pink's version being better, yours is superior to both.

Ben said...

I really love this amazing "mash up" you made, it's Superb.
I had no idea this song was recorded by Lambert before P!nk, I just love her version, I can't believe the song wasn't good enough for "Funhouse"
It's my Favorite new song from her GH, I wish it was her next single instead "F*cking Perfect"

Matt Benyo said...
