Getting to know Girl Talk

Talk about a career change: Gregg Gillis - known to some, most likely, as the guy behind Girl Talk - has gone from being a biomedical engineer by day to serving as a one-man laptop band.

Girl Talk channels a diverse array of popular music spanning the last 50 years. Gillis' latest album, “All Day,” consists of 372 samples over the course of 71 minutes, blending various genres and decades - no wonder his music is described as a “pop collage.”

You can hear, for example, the Rolling Stones' “Paint it Black” with Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow," plus the Young Rascals' “Good Lovin’” and Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair,” all fused into one song at the same time.
