#ThemeSongTuesday: Close Your Eyes On This Day

There exists, on YouTube, an interesting and creative subgenre of wrestling fans: the theme song mixers. They are madly talented, and not to mention in possession of a lot of time on their hands—time to come up with and execute what should be inconceivable mashups of themes that never sound like they would go together.

One such mixer is EricMinnesota, who's come up with arguably the best mashups on YouTube. (One of our personal favorites is still this awesome mix of the Ruthless Roundtable's individual themes.) And in honor of Edge and Christian's appearance on this week's episode of RAW, we've uncovered a mashup he made of their individual themes.

It's not his best cut ever, but there's no denying that it works, especially when the chorus to "Just Close Your Eyes" is set against the guitars from "Metalingus." And while we love Jim Johnston, it's a hell of a lot better than the mashups he commissions for thrown-together WWE teams. (Don't look them up. You won't like them.)
