It’s becoming a New Year’s tradition…at the end of every December, DJ Earworm cobbles together the top 25 songs of the year and creates a song out of pieces of all 25 tracks. Coming up with this year’s Best of 2010 track probably wasn’t easy, seeing as just about every song sounds alike. Yeah, it’s kind of a cheap shot, but dance/pop definitely had a banner year in 2010, and for every well-constructed song in the genre (see: Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream”), there were twice as many abominations (Usher’s “OMG” and “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love”, Enrique Iglesias’s embarrassing “I Like It” and Taio Cruz, just to name a few.) What wasn’t in on pop radio this year? Rock music (not one song on the list can even remotely be considered rock) and ballads (with only Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now”, B.o.B.’s “Nothin’ on You” and Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are” qualifying. As it turns out, the mash-up rates better than a good majority of the songs featured!
