DJ Earworm has been mashing up the top 25 songs of each calendar year since 2007, and now the 2013 edition of “United State of Pop” is here, and it’s called “Living The Fantasy.”

This year’s mix, released Tuesday, is slower than mashups from past years, thanks to darker, downtempo hits like Lorde’s Royals, Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball and Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors.

“It’s a little darker-themed, I think,” Earworm (real name, Jordan Roseman) told Billboard about his latest mash-up. The artist even said he considered making this year’s song a ballad but ultimately chose to use the instrumental from Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child as the base of the song to make it more uptempo.
