New Year's Treats: Top 25 of 2010 Mashup; Girl Talk's "All Day" Annotated

Thought I'd start the new year off with a couple of fun mashup videos. The one above is the latest in DJ Earworm's medley of Billboard's top 25 songs of the year. I came across this one in an article on by Rachel Sklar; you can find the list of all the songs at the article. Included are songs by Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Eminem.

Girl Talk's latest album, "All Day," features numerous song samples... but what are they and when does each sample appear? The website Mashup Breakdown allows you to listen to "All Day" while a graph underneath each song shows what songs are being sampled and when. It's more fun that just looking at a list of the samples, since you can see all the songs being sampled as you're hearing them.

Happy New Year!
