This is probably the best thing on Youtube, but for some reason - copyright concerns would be my guess - embedding has been disabled since forever.
Now it's not.
Norwegian Recycling's Six Songs Collide
I have read that this collision works because the source songs are all essentially riffs on Pachelbel's Canon in D-Major.
For whatever reason, it does work, beautifully, and I'm bookmarking it so I can't lose it again.

I first heard the Canon while visiting a friend in her co-ed dorm. We were talking (no, talking, really, honest), and I slowly became aware of this gorgeous music seeping in from the hall. I had to stop the conversation and find the guy who was playing it and ask him what it was....

What's the story on this, then? Did all those different performers really collaborate on doing the music, or is this an astounding and amazing mix retroactively done by someone who noticed that all those songs had the same beat and key signature and similar enough melodies that they could be combined in that way?
My intuition is that it really was performed this way, not mixed retroactively. It just seems too good.

He changed the tempo of some of the songs to fit (probably all but one, since they fit so exactly). The Jason Mraz piece that it starts with is normally much slower; the other changes are less noticeable.
Although he uses the name Norwegian Recycling for his mixes, the artist's name is Peter Bull and he lives in Australia. You can download all his work here, at least until the record companies decided otherwise - or give him a contract.
