All right, we know what you're thinking: Ugh! Another mash-up, right? Wait a sec. This one -- assembled by the furiously talented pop tart known as Tyler Ward -- is different. How so, you ask? Well, for one, he played all the instruments and sang all of the parts. When we stumbled on the clip, we were so intrigued, we dropped him a line. According to Mr. Ward, he basically just took a look at the list of current Top 40 pop songs to see what was hot and then tried his hand at replicating each track and made a montage of the results. The continuity, considering that they're all different songs, is pretty stunning. At least that what several KISS stations across the country who've added the song thought. Check out the clip after the jump, and when you're finished, if this is the first you've heard of Ward, by all means, stop by the guy's MySpace page to give a listen to his original songs.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
