Sgt. Pepper's Turns 40 - Celebrate With Mashups

mojo-photo-sgtpeppersAnniversaries are kind of dumb, even if it's the anniversary of an album that supposedly changed music forever. As you've probably heard, The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band came out 40 years ago this weekend; it's a completely arbitrary moment, except in a kind of "boy, 40 sure is old" sense, and honestly I've never really listened to the album all the way through (I prefer Revolver, and I'm more of a Stones man anyway). But it does provide an excuse for digging through the hard drive for some amusing mashups featuring tracks from Sgt. Peppers.
