This year’s top 25 music videos have come together in one mega mashup song and video that has been flooded with so many views that the video counter froze at 303 views as of 9:00 a.m. EST, despite having thousands of comments and "likes" suggesting a viral video.
The song, "World Go Boom," by DJ Earworm, is the DJ's annual ode to the year's biggest dance hits and has been making "The United State of Pop" since 2007.
The artist, who's real name is Jordan Roseman, is offering the track for free download off his website (http://djearworm.com/united-state-of-pop-2011-world-go-boom-htm.htm).
In a statement from his website, Earworm wrote, "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? WORLD GO BOOM."
He also noted some changes he made to his selection process of the songs. "In efforts to better reflect the year, I have a system that draws from the weekly charts from throughout 2011 that ensures that all the late-breaking hits (such as “We Found Love” & “Sexy and I Know It”) are included in the 2011 mix," Earworm stated.
The DJ appears to enjoy simplicity despite the complexity of his work. Under his about me section on his website, he wrote, "Basically, what I do is take a bunch of songs apart and put them back together again in a different way. I end up with tracks called mashups, which I post to this website."
Adding, "I also DJ with my laptop."
According to Global Herald, the DJ uses a songwriting approach to his mashups. He creates a theme and then selects certain words or phrases from the songs and cuts them up and layers them to make the song have its own message.
