‘The Magic iPod’ website is nostalgia incarnate

If you’re the type of music fan that thinks, “You know what this DMX song needs? A remix with Vanessa Carlton,” then wait no longer. The Internet has provided.

“The Magic iPod” is a mash-up site built in 2007 that allows you to combine hip-hop/rap songs with pop songs from the mid-2000s. Indeed, two of those songs are “X Gon’ Give It To You” and “A Thousand Miles.” Don’t think it would work? Listen here.

While the site has been around for 10 years, it’s been making the rounds on the Internet again, mostly through social media. It’s probably popping back up again because a donations tab at the bottom of the webpage leads to the ACLU’s website.

Give it a try here before it gets taken down.

Some of my personal favorites:

Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” + Blink-182’s “I Miss You”

Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky” + Cake’s “Short Skirt, Long Jacket”

The aforementioned DMX mix, but also DMX + Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah”

Nelly’s “Country Grammar” + Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue”
