Chiddy Bang Get "Happy"
For the grand finale of the 2010 season of our Mashup Mondays video series, we're proud to bring you a double feature: alt-hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang doing up Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy" and Marina and the Diamonds covering "Starstrukk" by 3Oh!3.
Philadelphia's own Chiddy Bang are not shy about mixing and matching genres in thier music, so tackling the infectiously catchy melody of Bobby McFerrin's a capella mouth-sound-laden hit, "Don't Worry Be Happy" was a fitting challenge. The tune climbed all the way to No. 1 on the Hot 100 in 1988, about a year before either member of Chiddy Bang was born. The duo themselves, however, are no strangers to the Hot 100. Thier tune "Opposite Of Adults" logged time on the chart earlier this year.
