What’s big in our box // This is what 2012 sounded like: DJ Earworm Mashup – United State of Pop 2012 (Shine Brighter)

DJ Earworm

As the year chugs to a close, you may well ask yourself, if the most popualr music of 2012 could be mashed up into one chunky choon, what in blue blazes would it sound like?

Well, DJ Earworm has gone all santa on us and answered that very conundrum (as he has done every year since 2007, to be fair) with his end of the year Billboard mashup. There’s always a few of these multimashes at this time of year, but DJ Earworm’s is by far the best.

And if you don’t like it, you know what to do: BUY BETTER BLOODY MUSIC NEXT YEAR!

    I must admit, I enjoyed that a LOT more than I expected to, considering both 1D and Taylor Swift feature!
