Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP vs. Backstreet Boys vs. more "Everybody Speaks No Americano" (2010)

The mash-up of the week, "Everybody Speaks No Americano," comes care of Mashup Germany and was uploaded a week ago by YouTuber Ben Stiller. The irresistible audio/video concoction cleverly incorporates several sources, including the Backstreet Boys, but draws primarily from the current quirky-but-infectious surprise international pop hit by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP, "We No Speak Americano." 

The new mash-up takes the regular radio single version plus two remix versions (including the Chaos Club mix) of the summer novelty hit and then melds them with the Backstreet Boys' 1998 hit "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" plus the overture from Phantom of the Opera and segments from both Bob Sinclar Feat. Dollarman and Big Ali & Makedah's "Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)," and Benny Benassi's sexually charged 2009 club hit "Satisfaction."

The end result is a catchy-as-hell, sugary pop confection that packs a similar appeal to that of the main source the mash-up draws from, "We Speak No Americano." That electro pop record, a studio collaboration between Australians Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP, originally quietly surfaced back in February of this year when it was released on the Australian label Sweat It Out. The single is constructed around an old sample from the 1956 Italian recording of the song "Tu vuo fa l'Americano" by Italian singer Renato Carosone which was a satire piece about an Italian imitating the American lifestyle. The dance/pop song has topped charts all over and this week is #1 in such countries as Germany, Argentina, & Belgium.
