You can stop stringing up those lights and nailing that Santa to your roof, because this street officially wins Christmas.

A stretch of more than 16 homes in Yucaipa, Calif. coordinated their holiday displays, which light up to music, and the entire show is being captured via drone.

"The Manning Street Christmas Music Light Show", as it is called, runs daily, and people in the area can park their cars and tune into 92.5 FM to experience it.

Coordinator Jeff Maxey uploaded a few different demo videos to his page. In addition to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" (above), watch the homes perform "Wizards in Winter" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

DJ Earworm has been mashing up the top 25 pop songs of the year since 2007 with his "United State of Pop" video series.

He released the 2014 edition on Wednesday, "Do What You Wanna Do," with all the songs you love but are too embarrassed to admit.

DJ Earworm, whose real name is Jordan Roseman, says this year's songs are more down tempo than previous years, so weaving them together is a bit more difficult.

"The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM," he told Billboard. "The 'United State of Pop' became this dance track from '09 to '12, and then starting last year, there just wasn't enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo."

This is what Christmas sounds like in Hell.

Composer Andy Rehfeldt has turned the classic tune "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" into a holiday headbanger.

Satan Santa approves.

Husband and wife musical team Michael and Carissa Alvarado, aka "Us the Duo," has taken all the big earworms from 2014 and compressed them together into one 2.5 minute acoustic recap.

The couple is famous for their "#6SecondCovers" on Vine, and their popularity led to them becoming the first musicians on Vine to sign with a major label.


No matter how sick you are by now of songs like "Shake It Off" or "Happy," they make them sound pretty good.

OK Go is trying to out weird itself once again.

The band known for their creative, over-the-top music videos involving treadmills, drones and Rube Goldberg machines wants to release their latest album "Hungry Ghosts" as DNA.

Lead singer Damian Kulash met with a biochemist at UCLA who successfully converted a book into DNA, so he got the idea to do the same with his music.

In addition to figuring out how to translate the songs into genetic code, there is also the issue of distribution - which they say could simply be a small vial with a few drops of water containing the strands.

"Obviously, it's an artistic gesture and a scientific project, not the most efficient way to actually buy our album," said Kulash.

So it's unlikely that deoxyribonucleic acid will kill the mp3 star anytime soon.

This is the only Lenny Kravitz video you ever need to see.

Thanks to Neil Cicierega, the guy behind the '90s mixtape "Mouth Sounds," the hit single from 1998 "Fly Away" has been transformed into a new work of art with dragonflies and Milky Ways.

Watch all the way to the end to get to the nutty stuff inside this unexpected treat.

While her "Frozen" co-star Kristen Bell is taking a more modern approach to Christmas songs, Idina Menzel is sticking with the classics - albeit one of the more controversial classics.

Watch them sing through the mouths of young children - for some reason - in a version of the song that also cuts out the alcohol references and some of the predatory innuendo from the original.

There was a problem rendering this video - it may have been deleted.

Is this the new "Dark Side of the Rainbow?"

For some strange reason, Taylor Swift's earworm "Shake It Off" matches up in time with the 1989 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship Opening video.

You've probably seen this bizarre of the spandex-clad dancers before, but now there's a whole new layer of weirdness and wonder to enjoy.

Watch out "Jedi bitches." The Dark Side has never been sexier.

Nerdist is out with a new Star Wars parody of the hit song by Meghan Trainor, "All About That Bass" featuring Team Unicorn, Darth Vader cheerleading outfits and dancing storm troopers.

What more could you want, besides maybe a Jedi response via Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda?"



For another sci-fi parody of this song, check out this 'All About That Space' video.

When he isn't chasing around girls through the woods, Johnny Depp is breaking their hearts on stage with a guitar.

The actor made a surprise guest appearance during Marylin Manson's Halloween show at The Roxy in Los Angeles on Friday during "The Beautiful People."

T-Pain, the musician who popularized auto-tune to the extent where he even had his own iPhone app for it, is now showing the world in a concert for NPR, that he can in fact sing without the help of technology.

"People felt like I was using it to sound good," T-Pain told NPR. "But I was just using it to sound different."

Based on this performance, he should probably ditch the auto-tune more often.

An unfortunate accident detailed in this Dutch news article mentions Anna was hit by a car riding her bike. Anna was not wearing headphones and had her hood down to see. The driver was sober and was keeping to the speed limit. The entire incident is just tragically sad.
