One thing that's guaranteed at the end of each recent year is that at both the start and the end of each December emcee Skillz and DJ Earworm will respectively weigh in with their entertaining annual wrap-ups. In case of the longtime rapper Skillz (aka Mad Skillz), who was interviewed here last year, he does so via the form of his always entertaining annual "Rap-Ups." These are quick witted rhyme commentaries culled from the year's news and gossip and hip-hop headlines (many items falling under all three categories) that he traditionally records and posts on the final day of the year.  Meanwhile  around the beginning of each December,  San Francisco mashup master DJ Earworm rolls out his "United State of Pop" year end retrospectives. Premiered via YouTube and/or at San Francisco mashup club Bootie SF, Earworm's annual audio/video mashup productions condense the top 25 major Billboard pop hits of the year into approx full minutes.

DJ Earworm's just published 2016 production, entitled "United State of Pop 2016 (Into Pieces)," is posted below with the track-listing above and some of the corresponding artist album covers.  As per usual, Earworm's slick production effortlessly condenses those 25 hits into a seamless fast paced mix. Depending on how you felt about pop music in 2016 will pretty much determine how you much you like or dislike Earworm's ‘United State of Pop’ 2016 (Into Pieces) mashup megamix of hit songs.

A quick study of the totals of views and Likes/Dislikes of the past several years of his YouTube posts show that most people really like his annual mixes with the Likes typically rated at 100 to every  2 Dislikes on average. But this year the ratio of Dislikes has increased substantially (so far at least) to twice as many as previous years. That's maybe because, in those peoples' opinions, pop music sucked more in 2016 compared to previous recent years. Or perhaps the rise in Dislikes is because in 2016 the overall tone and mood of the nation has gotten somewhat darker and more negative, especially toward the end of this year.  Regardless most people including myself "Like" DJ Earworm's latest annual mix in which he revisits, via snippets and mashup mixing, the 25 universal pop hits of 2016 (some released in late 2015) that appear in his megamix video immediately below and are listed in alphabetical order up above with blue highlights linking to each artist's music at the Amoeba store.
