One of the best known mashups is the Sugababes 2002 UK chart-topper "Freak Like Me." The Sugababes hit was originally a bootleg titled "We Don't Give a Damn About Our Friends," created by UK based producer Richard X under the alias Girls on Top. He had the idea of re-recording the music of Gary Numan's "Are 'Friends' Electric?
" and putting the vocals of Adina Howard's "Freak Like Me" on top of it. The bootleg became a classic anthem in UK clubs, and it was decided that it would be a good idea to release it commercially. However, Adina Howard was unwilling to give permission for her vocals to be used so The Sugababes were bought in instead.
