Thumbs down POP music

I just do not understand how people could like POP music. Every time i hear any kind of POP music i run under covers Well maybe i was born in a state of trance

How about you?

It's all about taste. there are some good pop songs and there are some bad pop songs. I like some of the radio friendly dance-pop i'm hearing these days. You have to listen to it with a different 'ear' than you'd listen to underground stuff.

That's a bad way to look at music. You have to keep an open mind. Saying you don't know how people like Pop music would be like a pop listenr asking how you listen to that "gay Trance stuff" lol.

As long as you enjoy the track, popular or not. That's all that matters for me anyway.

Well, sometimes there are songs that generally baffle me: "This is popular? Why?" But on the whole, I find pop to be too bland to get overly worked up about.

Pop music ruled in the 1980's. Nothing can beat that decade because all styles were good. The 1990's were good too but started to decline in the later years. Then the 2000's till today the pop music is pure crap and I can't stand it.

I totally agree. I didn't mind 1980s (my favorite decade) and 90s. Even the boy bands sounded good.

But now it's absolute crap. There is good music being made just not top 40 which is fine.

I listen to J-pop, new age, smooth jazz that is current and that is excellent.

Are the pop charts in the US normally this static? I mean, let's take "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. When I first heard it I thought: "Meh, this is perfectly generic non-offensive pop crap. Whatever." And then I hear it hits number one and stays there for... How many weeks exactly? How?

I do enjoy some music from today but not the mainstream top 40. I too like smooth jazz.

I agree. 80's-90's music was golden.

Scientist officially confirmed it. Pop music too loud and all sounds the same. http://j.mp/NBmZ0y

The same could be said about trance today. They should do a study on trouse. It would look something like 50% white noise, 50% the same, -100% listenable.

I won't bash pop music and say that it sucks because pop has its place but it's not my thing and never has been.

In the summer of 2010, I listened to one radio station. All they played was 80s music. No specific genre, not just the "hits", just anything from the 80s. It was an AM station so the quality was abysmal and they could only broadcast during the day to avoid interference with a conservative talk radio station in Oklahoma City, but dangit it was just too good. Plus, there were next to no commercials believe it or not. Still around now, but they have an FM transmitter and internet stream, and quite a bit more commercials (eh, gotta make money somehow).

For the most part now, EDM has taken over as my main listening music, especially Trance since it makes for some really good driving music.

pop music ruined a Dance Music Station I listened to in Las Vegas back in 2008 94.5 the vibe, July of 2010 they flip flopped the format to top 40 drek and the ratings plummeted, by Jun of 2011 they were taken off the air and replaced by Jelli Radio, not much of an improvement cause they still played the same crap, the vibe had moved to a barstow station that plays in vegas called Highway 99.7 only on during midnight to 5am, for a while they were improving and going back to the way it was sposed to be, EDM, shortly after returning to 24/7 format on the station they went right back to the top 40 crap and were yanked off the air in less than 2 weeks, with the station firing Mike Oaks who ruined the station back when it was on 94.5
