A website that allows its users to mash-up classic songs from the 2000s has resurfaced on social media and people are excited.

Created in 2007, “The Magic iPod” combines hits you wouldn’t normally associate with each other. You can play DJ by dragging and dropping hip-hop tracks such as Jay Z’s “99 Problems” over pop songs like Vanessa Carlton’s “1000 Miles,” creating an unexpected combo you never knew could exist and enjoy. If you like it enough, there’s an option to download your favorite spins.

There are no advertisements and not much else on the site, but its mysterious creator wants you to “please support the ACLU” and provides a link to the organization.  ACLU has recently made headlines for their work defending stranded immigrants impacted by President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

It’s a hit for millennials discovering it (again), with many posting their delight on Twitter under the #themagicipod. Some gave suggestions of the best combinations.
