Childhood Memories Remixed

Electronic music artist Pogo creates tracks by sampling and mixing sounds from films, many of them children's movies. He also creates awesome music videos to accompany them. I have watched this one, based on the movie Hook, about a million times. This was a favorite movie of mine circa 1997, and one of the few I still own on DVD. I love the choice of raw material and the results.

I realize quite of few of you out there might have never seen Hook (shame on you) so here's another example based on Mary Poppins.

If there were a Reappropriate This Academy Award, Pogo would surely be the winner.

I loved that Hook one! So creative. And catchy too. The Mary Poppins one reminded me that I found that movie really disturbing as a kid. I'm not quite sure why.
