DJ Earworm is celebrating the year in music by mashing up a number of the 2011 hit singles into one. Having been doing the treat as an annual tradition, the disc jokey picks songs by the likes of Adele, Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Britney Spears, Cee-Lo Green, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Maroon 5 and LMFAO for a so-called "The United States of Pop" this year.
The DJ wishes to reflect 2011 which "gave us songs of regret and anger, pride and perseverance, and lots of fire." He makes "some changes in the song selection process this year, in efforts to better reflect the year." He explains, "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."
Last year, the DJ whose real name is Jordan Roseman brought "Don't Stop the Pop" as a theme. He mashed up hit singles by Ke$ha, Lady Antebellum, Train, Usher, B.o.B, Eminem, Taio Cruz, Mike Posner, Travis McCoy, Iyaz, Jay-Z and Jason Derulo. Artists like GaGa, Riri, Katy and Bruno, who are on this year's list, were included as well.
