I’ve been meaning to post this for a minute but I got swept up in the tsumami that was the holidays and then… I got sick! However, I have emerged from my NyQuil coma a new man ready to get his blog on in the new year, so let’s go!
I discovered DJ Earworm last year and raved about the genius way he took the biggest hits of the year, as determined by Billboard magazine, and blended them into one seamless perfectly listenable song—- I mean, the man made Kings of Leon, Beyonce, and Miley Cyrus work… together!
Needless to say, my expectations were high this time around and while this year’s megamix is again seamless and makes clever us of vocal snippets from a lot of 2010’s big pop hits, I felt kinda “ehhh” about this one. Perhaps it was the Katy Perry ‘n’ Kesha overload (I refuse to type a d*mn dollar sign in that chick’s name) or the flatness of the backing track, but this year’s Earworm wrap-up is bit of a bust.
I remain impressed with Mr. Worm’s production mastery but I dunno if this one stands up to repeated plays like last year’s Black Eyed Pea-licious pop stew. Check out the video, though; its still work a peek.
