Mark Ronson Contest


Move over Timbaland, Mark Ronson is the hottest producer in the music business right now. On his new release, Version, Ronson displays his versatility, masterfully crafting tracks for Kenna, Phantom Planet, Lily Allen, and others. I’ve been listening to the CD a lot recently, especially the more dance-oriented singles. “Stop Me” is definitely the highlight of the album, borrowing excruciatingly catchy vocals from Daniel Merriweather, who collabs with Ronson on other tracks. Ronson takes a more live-band approach to Lily Allen’s “Oh My God”, as you can see in the video below.

I know what your thinking: blah blah this is great and all Zack but this post is called Mark Ronson CONTEST. Well here it is. In the spirit of Mark Ronson, I want you to leave a comment with your favorite collaboration. This could be Run DMC and Aerosmith, Jay-Z and Nas, macaroni and cheese or any other delectable duos. Leave your email in the comment. First place winner gets a copy of Ronson’s Version, and second and third place get the “Stop Me” single.

Check the song and video below, and start commenting.

    In the spirit of the holidays, I was really tempted to say Bing and Bowie on Little Drummer Boy, but my real all-time fav is Bowie and Queen “Under Pressure”.

    Agree that Version is pretty great and it doesn’t hurt that Mark Ronson is a total hottie. Just saying.

    The best combination was Thom Yorke and Unkle’s “Rabbit In the Headlights.” Unkle at the time was James Lavelle & DJ Shadow. James, Shadow, and Thom! What more could you want?

  4. Everett says:

    Sean Taylor & Laron Landry. duh.

  5. mad morris says:

    Best Collaboration – My mom and dad making me. ‘Nuff said.

    Seriously though, 2nd to the Unkle/Thom Yorke collaboration is the Chemical Brothers and Noel Gallagher with Setting Sun. 3rd would be the unwitting mix of Jay-Z and the Beatles on Danger Mouse’s Grey Album…
