United State of Pop 2015 (50 Shades of Pop) – DJ EarwormJanuary 1, 2016
Happy New Year everybody! How better to welcome in a new year of music than with a retrospective of the last year’s top music? DJ Earworm holds a special place in my heart for mashups and he even got a term about end of year mashups coined – the “yearworm”. 2008 was pretty universally greeted as his best yearworm, probably because Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” provided such a good backing instrumental to work with. This year starts out a little shaky but pulls together quite well. He’s taken the difficulty up a couple levels; this year he mixed together the top 50 tracks, not just the top 25. I think it was around the 3:00 mark that I really started jamming along and unreservedly enjoying this mashup. Tell me what you think!
