Cherry Pick of the Week - DJ Earworm Mashup - United States of Pop 2013 (Living the Fantasy)

It's that time of year again (already!) where DJ Earworm, the San Franciscan music melder picks the top 25 pop tunes of the year before and creates the years Unites State of Pop tune. 

Living the Fantasy, his 2013 offering is much darker than previous years, which he acknowledges,  “It’s a little darker-themed, I think,” Earworm (real name, Jordan Roseman) told Billboard about his latest mash-up. The artist even said he considered making this year’s song a ballad but ultimately chose to use the instrumental from Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child as the base of the song to make it more uptempo.

From where I'm sitting it's pretty clear to see when you compare the stomper United States of Pop 2012  and this years counterpart, there was slim pickings for decent pop music in 2013. 

Regardless of the poor material to hand, I reckon Living the Fantasy will still be echoing on dancefloors the length and breadth this holiday season. 

Tell me, what tunes are you lovin' of late?

I always listen to the same music, the one that breaks my heart.
