DJ Earworm Captures the American Pop Music Scene with Creative "Mashups"

One method of capturing one of the themes or feel for a given year is to review the music and artists who either emerged or stayed on the top of the pop charts.  DJ Earworm is a master of the music "Mashup" - basically it's the art of taking many songs and mashing parts of them together to create a new song. 

Earworm has created an annual mashup of the Top 25 most popular songs according to Billboard magazine since 2007.  Here is the 2011 edition entitled "World Go Boom" followed by the previous annual mashups.

WORLD GO BOOM (2011)

From DJ Earworm's blog:

2011 gave us songs of regret and anger, pride and perseverance, and lots of fire.
When someone’s taken everything from you, what do you do?

DON'T STOP THE POP (2010)

In 2010, pop has gone into serious all-out party mode. In 2009 the music was encouraging us to pick ourselves back up after being knocked down again, and to rock out to some great dance music while you’re at it. This year’s music tells us to keep going now that we’re up and having fun. In fact, the fun seems to be in such overdrive that it borders on recklessness. Usher urges us to ‘dance like it’s the last night of your life”, and Katy Perry wants us to “run away and don’t ever look back”. Even the songs that aren’t about parties have parties in their videos, like this year’s entries from Mike Posner and Lady Antebellum.
