If you've turned on a radio, television, or happen to have seen DESPICABLE ME 2, then you're probably familiar with "Happy," the song performed by PHARRELL WILLIAMS, that's become a smash hit over the past few months. "Happy" may be bigger than the Arby's hat that he wore to the Grammys, or the other one that he wore while performing on the Academy Awards earlier this month. So bring in an element of a "galaxy far, far away," and you've got the "HAPPY (We Are From Tatooine)" video, a viral clip put together by STAR WARS fans in Tunisia, location of many familiar locations that STAR WARS fans will recognize as Tatooine. Darth Vader, Boba Fett, C-3PO, R2-D2 and many others can be seen getting "Happy" in the video below.

The 56th GRAMMY Awards airs tonight at 8pm/7c on CBS, and if predictions are your thing, you might be interested to know what Spotify thinks of tonight's field. While I'm of the mindset that the GRAMMYS are still vastly out-of-touch and largely unimportant (they good straighten out, but choose not to), it's still fun to take a stab at what the GRAMMY voters have picked. Utilizing stream data from their user base, the Spotify team has issued their picks in some key categories, this coming after correctly predicting the Record of the Year and Album of the Year wins in 2013. Check out their 2014 picks and notes below...

As we close the books on 2013, it's only appropriate that I feature this latest mashup from DJ Earworm. Having started his annual UNITED STATE OF POP series several years ago (2007, I think), they've become a tradition in recapping a full year's worth of pop hits in one masterful mashup.  "United State of Pop 2013 (Living the Fantasy)" was released earlier this month and features 25 of the year's biggest hits, all worked into one mix, complete with a video. It's "clean," too, which makes it family-friendly. Check it out below...
