Listen: DJ Earworm’s United State of Pop 2013 mashup!

United State of Pop 2013 (Living the Fantasy

It's become something of a tradition for DJ Earworm to close out the year with a tasty mashup of the year's twenty-five biggest songs, which not only serves as a neat little way to close out the year, but also serves as a barometer of how old you are. Seriously, look at all of the songs he used in United State of Pop 2013 (Living the Fantasy)! I don't even know half of them! And would you darn kids get off my friggin' lawn already? MORE

DJ Earworm’s United States of Pop 2012 is here!

DJ Earworm

Every year, DJ Earworm takes the biggest pop songs of the year, grinds them down into one single song, and puts it up on the web. Once again, Earworm has capped off 2012 with his United States of Pop mashup, this time including Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Psy, Adele, Fun., Carly Rae Jepsen, Flo Rida, Bruno Mars, and other pop acts I haven't heard of because my testicles have dropped.

Glee: Kate Hudson’s “Americano” / “Dance Again”

Glee

The new season of Glee premiers in just two days, on Thursday September 13th, and with it will come the debut of Kate Hudson's character, Cassandra, a bitchy dance instructor at NYADA. Well, here's your first look at her in full-blown musical action (a mashup of Lady Gaga's Americano and Jennifer Lopez's Dance Again), and I just have to say: GATDAYUM, KATE HUDSON. She looks damn good here! MORE

“Somebody That I Used To Know” + “Call Me Maybe”

Pomplamoose - Do Not Push

By now, Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" have been played so many times that you can write the melodies and lyrics to both songs backwards on a whim. And now adorably twee cover group Pomplamoose went ahead and mashed them up together into one song called "Do Not Push", and ... well, that's it. We've reached the pinnacle. Let's all move onto a new song now before this gets any more tedious. MORE

Mashup: We Are On Fire

We Are On Fire

One of the most unexpected pop hits this year came via the aptly titled indie band, fun. We Are Young, their little youth empowerment ditty that could, seemed to get on everyone's radar, and it made its way on to Glee and had major Superbowl exposure in a Chevrolet ad. Not to mention it features the amazing Janelle Monae. But what it was lacking was those dance beats we love so much, so DJ Tripp decided to remedy that by mashing them with the MORE

Mashup: Move Over, Katy

download

It's a happy day here for me, because it's a pretty rare thing to hear Janis Joplin get mashed up! A few years ago, there were a couple featuring Mercedes Benz, but I believe this is the first time I've ever heard Move Over (one of my faves from her) used in a mashup. Some might say it's blasphemy to marry a powerhouse legend like Janis with someone like Katy Perry, but I say this is the kind of moment when disparate genres come together with no MORE

Mashup: Children That I Used To Know

download-1

Every once in awhile, a little sleeper song comes around that gets under everyone's skin, and the song doing that this year is Somebody That I Used To Know by Goyte featuring Kimbra. This stirring track (and its equally intriguing video) has everybody asking What is that song?! and it's high time for a fantastic dance remix. Enter Italy's DJs From Mars, whose patented electro-banging beats add just the right punch, and it features another MORE

Mashup: Set Fire To True Faith

download

This week, we welcome back one of the original mashup masters, Party Ben. Lately he's been focusing more on doing straight up remixes rather than mashups. So when he drops a proper new bootleg, it's time for the happy dance! We already love Adele hard, and her Set Fire To The Rain is another pop smash. So imagine my glee when I heard Ben mash her with New Order, and their classic True Faith. It works like a charm, so fire it up! † MORE

Mashup Of The Week: Get Up, Hitch A Ride

download-1

This week's mashup takes two totally opposite genres (reggae and alternative rock), and turns it in to a new genre of its own, called awesome! Netherlands bootlegger G3RST (pronounced Gerst) saw the light and melds Jamaica (Bob Marley) with the Bay Area (Green Day) with flawless ease. Play it loud and stand up! I dedicate this mashup to International Women's Day, for everyone who disagrees with Rush Limbaugh's vile and misogynist comments, and to MORE

Mashup Of The Week: Looks Like That’s Alright

download

Oh baby, get your right-click mouse ready, as we're featuring a brand new mashup collection that is covered in awesome sauce! The folks at TheMashupRadio.com put together a collection featuring the works of all-star bootleggers like DJ Zebra, Dan Mei, Fissunix, Mighty Mike, Mad Mix Mustang, DJs From Mars and many others, with a bunch of exclusive blends, like this one. And here we go again with DJ Schmolli - I swear I'm not on his payroll! - MORE

Mashup Of The Week: In Bloom

download

This week, we take down the beats and focus on the simplistic beauty and power of what was created. First, a quick fact: February 20th was Kurt Cobain's birthday, and he would have turned 45 this year. Which is so odd to ponder, as I think we all still imagine him as the 27-year old voice of an upstart generation. What isn't odd, is how Nirvana's songs still sound so timeless and relevant. So in a goosebump-inducing ode to Mr. Cobain, we feature MORE

Mashup Of The Week: A Buffalo Ting

download

One of the coolest bands to come out of the UK recently was The Ting Tings. Their debut disc was eclectic, fun, and full of hooks and spunk. Their follow-up second disc is due in a few months, and their lead single Hang It Up was a fave of mine. And yay - it's now featured in this awesome sauce mashup by Xam, which also includes the sassy Neneh Cherry, some Nirvana, and a bit David Bowie. You score bonus points if you can name the early 80's drum MORE

Mashup: Super Bowl Anthem

download

So, did we just feature DJ Schmolli two weeks ago? Why yes, we did. But little did we know he had this little pigskin nugget up his sleeve and on the way! As everyone is buzzing about the Super Bowl this weekend - and by that, we mean Madonna's much-hyped, half-time performance - this raucous, multi-artist blend will get you cheering loudly on the sidelines! There's Madge, of course, along with LMFAO, Reel 2 Reel, House Of Pain, Tag Team and a MORE

Mashup Of The Week: Titanium 500

download-1

Would you walk 500 miles for an amazing mashup? Well, all you have to do is walk right over to your right-click function, and grab it! When I saw who was listed inside this blend, I wasn't sure it would work. But oh, how wrong I was! And I was stupid to even doubt its creator DJ Schmolli, 'cuz he doesn't make duds! So please enjoy David Guetta featuring Sia (blowing up like Titanium), those 80's ginger-nerd boys from The Proclaimers, and even a MORE
