DJ Earworm is back with his annual end of year mash-up of the biggest songs, and 2015’s release is superbly executed.
From Taylor Swift’s break-up smash “Bad Blood” and Bruno Mars’ chart-topper “Uptown Funk” to Ellie Goulding’s Fifty Shades of Grey theme and Adele’s comeback hit “Hello”, you won’t be able to get this one out of your head all day.
Earworm, real name Jordan Roseman has built his latest offering around The Weeknd’s hugely popular “I Can’t Feel My Face” and Maroon 5’s catchy “Sugar”, but snippets of all your favourites are bound to feature in there somewhere (Swifties, rejoice, as there are four from Taylor alone).
“I try to get a feel of what is in the zeitgeist,” he told Billboard. “Music has been going through a softer phase than it was a few years ago so there’s the return of adult contemporary.

“It’s a more eclectic mix than it was five years ago.”
