Name That Tune

DJ Earworm is back with this year’s United State Of Pop  mash-up, and we’re still picking up pieces of our brain after hearing how he paired up Taylor Swift‘s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” with two late entrants into the 2012 canon, Ke$ha (“Die Young”) and Bruno Mars (“Locked Out Of Heaven”). After that, we hear snippets of Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna, Gotye, fun., Katy Perry, PSY and other familiar 2012 hits as they weave in and out of the altered foundation of “Die Young.” And yes, even that pesky Adele makes her way into the year’s retrospective. Relive all of 2012 in just under four minutes up top.

Did you like this year’s mash-up better than the 2011 version? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter.
