2009 Mainstream Music in 4:46

For any of you who are as interested in this new phenomenon of mash-up music, you will surely appreciate this compilation by DJ Ear Worm. Not only does he mix songs together, but he even cleverly compiled the music videos together!
Now comes the question if you think mash-ups are legitimate displays of musical talent?
Personally I think the ability to make two or more songs become one is a great skill. You have to both have the ear to know what would sound good together aesthetically, but also the lyrics have to match up, the beats, the vocals. Plus, a great understanding of computers programs in order to make the songs work the way you want them to. I think mash-ups are just as legitimate a music genre as pop or hip-hop, etc.

Here is the catchy compilation of the top 25 songs of 2009!
