Top Ten Pop Music Questions to Ask Users of TheTopTens


The Top Ten

1 Ariana Grande or Taylor Swift?

Taylor Swift rules in songwriting and creativity, while Ariana Grande has better vocal talent. I'd still probably choose Taylor Swift because her older songs had so much originality.

Taylor Swift is better because she puts passion into what she makes and wrote some really sweet and beautiful country songs. Plus, "Ronan" which is Taylor's best song, is way better than Ariana's best, which was "The Way". - DCfnaf

Definitely going for Taylor Swift. Her lyrics are more decent

Taylor Swift - AliciaMae

Just like fire! This is how we do was crap

Just Like Fire, I guess. - DCfnaf

Neither, how about a Migos song! - FollowMeNow

3 Twenty One Pilots or Fall Out Boy?

Twenty One Pilots, no question. The guys behind Heathens and Stressed Out are awesome and deserve their attention. - DCfnaf

I REALLY like both, but honestly, I think I'm going to give the edge to Fall Out Boy here. - WonkeyDude98

I like both, but Fall Out Boy is much better. Twenty One Pilots are a little too emo - venomouskillingmachine

Both - AliciaMae

4 Real Vocals or Autotune?

REAL VOCALS by far, but I don't hate autotune if it's used with personality. Lady Gaga uses it to have a personality for her music. - DCfnaf

Real vocals. Autotune ruins your voice. - Kiyomi

Real vocals. Why is this even a question? - 3DG20

Real Vocals - AliciaMae

True colors is such a beautiful song.

True Colors - AliciaMae

6 Lorde or Halsey?

Halsey! Lorde is bad and all of her songs sound the same. Halsey is the best singer ever and all of her songs are so different and amazing. But still all 11/10...How does the best singer ever do it? We will never know... - lovefrombadlands

Lorde is way better than Halsey because Halsey is trying to rip her, and Lana Del Ray, off. - DCfnaf

Lorde, but I don't listen to either.

Halsey - AliciaMae

7 Best Artist of the Decade?

Halsey, that's easy. - lovefrombadlands

Taylor Swift! - ArielleBelle

Little Mix. I have nothing against fifth harmony I just prefer little mix's style, vocals, and songs and think they're more talented. I don't want to say that fifth harmony aren't I just think little mix are better.

Little Mix is supposed to be a "Diet-Fifth Harmony" but they can't be because they are better than 5th Harmony. Little Mix by a mile. - AlphaQ

I don't know what Little Mix is...but considering I despise Fifth Harmony, I'm saying Little Mix. - DCfnaf

Work I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate now

Owl City, I love both.

21 Old Pop or New Pop?

New pop because imma teenager and no that doesn't mean I don't have a good music taste, I just grew up with more recent songs.

I'm not even a teenager yet and most new music is crap and I think old music is 99% better - venomouskillingmachine

I don't hate new pop to be honest. Old is better, but there is good pop music now. - DCfnaf

Both of them. And Old pop is old news and it is better. - JamesNortonSucks
