Every Pop Song You Could Ever Want, In One Video
If you’d like to seamlessly transition between most of the past year’s radio pop hits in one big, pumping megamix, now you have that covered. DJ Daniel Kim has debuted the third installment in his Pop Danthology series, which mixes together 50+ pop songs and their corresponding music videos. Posted Sunday on YouTube, it’s already approaching 3 million views.
My favorite moment, I think, is a mix of Katy Perry’s “Part of Me” into a blend of Ne-Yo “Let me Love You” and Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart A Break.” Pretty emotive stuff, guys.
This video is a nice reminder of the mood-altering effect of pop and dance music, no matter how lyrically banal or mindlessly catchy. It was also a reminder that I don’t really like “Gangnam Style.”
Another thing: where will I be New Year’s Eve and what will music be playing?

This is the first part of a book that I am writing for Thought Catalog. This is a fiction book about young people in New York City. A lot of it is not fiction, and not made up, because I am not sure if I am very good at making things up.
The sad truth is that even if we were to invest all of our time and resources into making ourselves look like somebody else, most of us would not succeed in complying with the ridiculously unattainable beauty standard created by the media.
Don’t pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, but lately I’ve realized that sometimes you have to put in the effort yourself to make something you want to happen, happen.
