The Top Ten
One of many things I dislike about rap is how the idea of a song including a rap suddenly makes it appear incredible. It is really anything but. Especially given that any hip-hop influence detracts from the real purpose of music. It turns anything, from a pop song to an electro song, into a meaningless, deceptive, shallow and twisted entity of egotism and inapt worship. No matter whether the original song ever had a chance. If that doesn't disgust people, I don't know what would. - PositronWildhawk
Featured raps almost always ruined perfectly catchy and beautiful songs to me. I'd always find myself looking forward to the choruses or not listening to it at all. - keycha1n
I don't understand how remixing an engaging song with additional rap would make it attractive. That would take a huge load on my brain just to process that - Kiteretsunu
Oh, it featured Iggy? So you're famous now? - TheAwesomeBrosVotesV 2 Comments
All About That Bass
Remember The Beatles wanted to hold your hand? Now Nicki Minaj wants to do you in her automobile. - ToptenPizza
Don't forget 75-80% of Prince's discography, though Prince is my favorite artist
Sometimes it's done well, sometimes it's not - mtndewlord
Once upon a time, John Lennon wanted to hold your hand. Then the Mick Jagger wanted to spend the night with you. Now, Robin Thicke... well... he wants to have raunchy sex.
"I am the Lizard King, I can do anything"- Jim Morrison.
I BELIEVE I CAN FLY! I BELIEVE I CAN TOUCH THE SKY! If you actually think you can fly after listening to that song then you're doomed. People can't fly. - RiverClanRocks
This Girl is on Fire
Let it Go - ToptenPizza
You know, like We can't Stop, Party in the USA, We like to party, Tik Tok, Last Friday Night, lots of them. I mean, those songs just never die, they're literally survivors!V 1 Comment
Yes! Can't love songs ever go away? Nope! Love songs are too popular and overrated. All they care about is sexy bodies and big boobs. That's not true love. 99% of all songs on the radio are people saying "baby, I want you" or make weird sex noises. I've noticed that pop songs always have a female moaning. Dude, kids are listening to that!
The Heart Wants What it Wants
Call Me Maybe
Anything by Justin Beiber or 1 direction.
And the constant reason why they love you is because you look nice. - ToptenPizza
Jacob Sartorius even made songs about love... *cringes* Screw, even pop artists write songs about romance and love are just "love songs". - FandomstuckV 2 Comments
Lets see, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Amanda Bynes, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, can't wait to watch Zendaya, Sabrina Carpenter, Rowan Blanchard, Olivia Holt, and Dove Cameron go nuts, score a few hits, then disappear. - ToptenPizzaV 1 Comment
Every hit Iggy Azalea has had includes some other artist. - ToptenPizza
Jonas Brothers, 1 Direction, Avril Lavigne, all think they are rock, but they are not! - ToptenPizza
21 Pilots, 5SOS, Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, claiming they're "alt," but really they're cheesy pop. (Personally, I like Coldplay, but they seem a bit poppy now.) - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
Rihanna is definitely NOT rock!
5 Seconds of Summer is an example. - Fandomstuck
Some artists, like Lady gaga use it for special effects, Ariana Grande when she makes a mistake, but then there are artists like Ke$ha who use it to make up for not being able to sing. - ToptenPizza
Wait a minute... That's my line during robbery. - Delgia2k
I hear it so much! In all the popular dance songs and stuff, it seems like they just run out of things to say so they go "Raise your hands in the air! /Put your hands up! /Put your hands in the air! /etc" - higgsboson2142
This is officially known as the "Millennial Whoop", and is included in numerous songs on purpose to appeal to that age bracket.V 3 Comments
Pop is NOT dubstep. Get that through your heads mainstream pop artists. - RiverClanRocksV 1 Comment
Selena, Miley, Nicki, Lady gaga, Ke$ha, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Rihanna. Hoe it up, right? - ToptenPizzaV 3 Comments
(pop-punk) progression in particular. Axis of Awesome perfectly illustrated this in their "4 note" medley.
I've never really minded 4-Chord Progression, sometimes it works really well - mtndewlord
Apparently it's all about the butt these days.
Yep. I have a big butt, and I'm not sexy
My dad likes pop, so when he listens to music like this I ask "is this a boy... Or a girl? " - AnonymousChick
