    I HATED 2002-2010. Then, they incorporated dance stuff, and now I have to say that I like most of the top 40 songs. I'm pretty happy. Pop music has gotten original and I can listen to the radio again.

    What do you guys think?

    I actually am pleased with the rythym and progression in most songs, but the lyrics still leave much to be desired.

    Then again, most of what is on the radio is the stuff people can jam to.

    Which reminds me. MTV has pretty much a waste of electricity long before 2010.

    Christina.... mmmm...

    Radio and Top 40 today is just as bad as it has ever been. Like always, you have to search a little harder for the creative, ground breaking, artistic, innovative, and clever than just turning on the radio or MTV or looking to see what has made it high on the charts on Billboard. Just like in the 80's, 90's, and 00's, there is a lot of good music out there today by talented artists who write for the art and creativity and not the charts, you just have to look for it.

    Where have you been post-2007? Music went more dance than hip hop after that.

    Music shouldn't be easy on the ears or accessible. For that reason I hate pretty much all pop music.

    Agreed. I was talking to a musician friend of mine just the other day about how terrible contemporary pop music has become.

    Dj's used to "bring up " the hits . With them out of the picture it's just been overproduced dance stuff..... I really don't feel it .... No real soul to disco music.

    I dont know, some of my favorite music came out in 2002-2010. And we have some weird ass stuff right now. It sounds like my gameboy color. Having said that, I do think good music is on the rise.

    i'm so far behind on current music trends. The only "current" radio station we had here in New Orleans (that I liked) got sold about two years ago and became a hard rock station overnight (literally in fact. i turned my car on the next morning and was nearly deafened by the stereo).

    Pop music is not any more original right now than it was in the last decade. The current trend of euro dance laced production courtesy of guetta and red one is getting a bit stale now.

    Its no better and no worse. Just like it always is.

    As long as it's got a good beat, I don't care. It's fun, it's catchy, which is what pop music is supposed to be.

    You can keep your yawntastic hipster ballads for sipping PBR to icon_smile.gif

    As a fan of electronic music from 2005-onward, pop has been using way more dancier beats. I still cant really get up to dance for it unless im drunk. Its pretty boring and repetitive.
