But seriously! This time we REALLY mean it!
The ENORMOUSLY talented DJ Earworm has JUST released his annual - and always-EPIC - mash-up of some of the 24 BIGGEST songs from the year 2012, this time titled Shine Brighter, and we really have to hand it to him!
This is less a mash-up and much MORE-SO an INSPIRED re-working of various pieces of music, all fit together to perfectly recreate a BRILLIANT original composition!
Give it a listen (above) and try to catch how brilliantly these songs transition in and out of one another!
