Maybe pop music in the last year hasn’t been as bad as I thought.
By now, you’re probably quite familiar with the ridiculously intricate mashups that DJ Earworm does each year, commemorating the past twelve months in pop music.
This year’s mashup is the best that I can remember. Hell, the fact that I recognize 75% of the music featured in here (I’ve never heard the OneDirection song, the Flo Rida song or Ke$ha’s “Die Young” before) speaks highly to a certain quality on top 40 radio these days. Of the songs featured, I’d say a good 6 or 7 (both Bruno Mars songs, Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain,” Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” Alex Clare’s “Too Close,” a couple others) are legit future classics.
Check it out for yourself and let us know how many of the songs you recognize!
