Adventures in Pop Music

So I was ruminating earlier this week about how I keep listening to the same music, how I rarely moving outside my comfort zone, and how I dismiss a lot of pop culture without really giving it a change. I decided that I would go out and sample a bunch of music I wasn't familiar with and I would start with the top 10 songs of 2011 according to Billboard.

First up was Adele with Rolling in the Deep.



Wow, I thought. I must have pop music all wrong. This is some good stuff and it's popular? I didn't think it was possible. Not only that, but it looks like people are embracing some great styles of music. And talent actually got someone to the top of the charts. Really, really amazing. Okay, bring on the next song!

    I agree whole-heartedly. LMFAO is the joke of the industry and I will never understand why so many people seem to like them and how they're so successful. It makes me weep just thinking about how unfortunate of a musical taste the majority of people have. :(

    But that's not fair, Adele's goal is to make good music that has meaning. LMFAO is trying to be ridiculous and have songs that have zero significance and are just a bunch of fun to dance to. They're not trying to be ~amazing, deep musicians~.

    What's not fair is that there's a lot more artists out there that are unknown and not at all successful with a lot more talent that are aiming to make good music that has meaning, while LMFAO continues to climb the charts on their ridiculous songs that have zero significance and are just a bunch of fun to dance to.

    Sometimes people want something that's just fun to dance. Not everyone wants a deep message when they get in the car or turn something on to create atmosphere. Music can be enjoyed on multiple levels... LMFAO is just a very, very superficial layer.


    Wouldn't be topping the charts if it wasn't something most people enjoyed.
