"Waiting Room"

Richard Phillips observes that one of the best mashups on the new Girl Talk album is Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” plus Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” at around 5:37 on “Let it Out”.

I would only add to this that one of my favorite full track mashups is Fugazi vs Destiny’s Child, melding “Waiting Room” with “Independent Woman.” The fact of the matter is that “Waiting Room” was just born to be a fun song, and it’s hopelessly sabotaged by Fugazi’s fundamentally anti-fun ideology. It takes the mash-up era to unleash the lurking genius in this tune.
