Finally a compilation that fits my attention span.

What fun! With so many songs to cram in, I found this one a little more frenetic than some of his less loaded mixes. But I always enjoy how he makes the familiar choruses seem to bloom out of each other in ways that tickle my ears with their strange contexts.

Right off, super confused by the inclusion of 2009's "Tik Tok" by K$sha.

There's a LOT of choppiness in the vocals. I'm guessing that some of that's coming from autotuning and adjusting tempo to fit the overall beat.

I'm just glad to see that, after a decade of pop music, we're still young, and this is still our time

Speaking of song mashups, The Hood Internet has been doing a series of extremely good mashups of pop songs all from a given year. So far they've done 1979 through 1983 inclusive, and they are all excellent.

Thanks for that shoutout, DoctorFedora! Hood Internet was one of my absolute faves years ago and it's awesome to randomly see they are still pushing out work--excited to listen!

It kinda makes it seem like it all sounds the same?

(yeah I know that's what my parents said too)

Curious about a remix like this from some previous decades would sound like.

Yes, but it's a fun autotune trainwreck!

Is it by release date or by chart topping?

That was a Epic smear of sound.

Not necessarily enjoyable but definitely Epic.

On the one hand, this is a very impressive feat. On the other hand, it feels like it was autogenerated by a computer.

This is obviously a hell of an achievement, but I like the 25 songs ones better. This is just so busy and the cuts so quick that it's not as much fun for me -- everything goes by so fast that I can't really recognize it.

This is really fun, thanks for posting it.

This was great. I would have loved it if it could have been twice as long (well, one and a half times), so that choruses could repeat and make it more like a real song than a chain. But I loved how it managed to combine some really disparate genres of pop in ways that felt like they were still in the same family, rather than jarring. I know that's mostly autotune, but it still worked for me. But I love all of his mixes - it's like going through an old yearbook you found in someone's garage and thinking "Oh, I remember that girl!"

Love the love for Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" which will forever be the song that won my summer heart as I traipsed through the sands of Rockaway Beach in 2014.
