I suppose you could call this my piano response to "Evolution of Dance"...

I've taken the popular children's song, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and used it to trace the evolution of 24 popular music styles, from waltz to dubstep. Bonus points to those that can guess the artist I picked as representative of each genre.

Also, because I'm a music nerd, I played the theme in all 12 keys.
