Top Ten Reasons Why Girls Like Pop Music
The Top Ten
This list is ridiculous. So you're saying ALL girls like pop? And that it's the only thing they like? I'm a dude and an extreme metal fan, and I've known girls who were into some meal bands not even I could withstand. Like, black metal and stuff. And I've known girls who were into rap. I don't like rap, but these people were girls, the liked rap, and they hated pop music. So NO - not every girl ha a crush on One Direction or Bieber. A lot of preteen girls like pop music because it's what they're exposed to. Once they get older, they learn what real music is and completely and finally disregard Harry Styles and His Circus of Failed Abortions. My point? Saying that all girls like pop music is like saying all Southerners like country. This list is just dumb. Goodbye. - ThatStrangeKid42
I actually think this list is stupid, you don't seem to realize every single person has different music taste. Like say a female from the 90's, you think all of them liked pop when in specific periods, male dominated genres were popular like Grunge, Electronic, Nu Metal, Glam Rock, you really think no girls liked some of those genres. So not all women like pop just like not all boys like rock, in fact some boys do like pop as well. - DJSchollen
I don't like this list, not all girls like pop, that is judgemental. I am a girl and I am more into rock than what I am into pop, plus, I hate One Direction, and plenty of other girls I know hate them too. I don't even think any of the members are hot and their music sucks, I hate the fact that they try to sing to girls and impress them, stupid. I listen to bands like Blink-182 and Green Day, bands that don't sing all about impressing girls and tries to make them fall in love with them. - AnimeDrawer
I used to, lol. Wasn’t I just garbage back then?V 23 Comments
Ok I have been looking at a lot of pop music lists and I can honestly say that this is one of the few that is very mean and in fact this whole list is very mean and should be removed. I'm 19 years old girl and I loved pop music from the day I was exposed to it and will continue to love it. The reason why I say this list is very mean is because different people have different taste in music and to create a list saying that they have bad taste and stuff just because they don't like what you like is very rude. Like my mom loves gentle and soft song and I tried to like them but it just didn't work out for me like I couldn't stand it at all and kept wanting the soft song to end. Like I gave rock a chance also but the same thing happened. Like in order for me to like songs and download it it has to pop songs because I really love them. But just because I don't like metal or rock I'm not going to post it in a list that offends some people who likes them. And that should go for other people ...more
This is sexist...
I've got a bad taste in music, huh? Newsflash! I'm a girl and I really hate most pop music, except dream pop, indie pop and older pop music. My brother loves pop and hates rock/metal. He tries so hard to convert me to pop music. My sister listens to pop but she at least listens to some rock and metal, and she even likes some of them. She's starting to get into Metallica and Iron Maiden, and loves Avenged Sevenfold. My mom doesn't even care for rock/metal, and my dad's a rocker and metalhead.
EXCUSE ME?! I agree, basically everyone in my class listens to stupid k-pop music but I listen to proper real alternative music, so that's not really an argument. MOST girls I guess listen to pop music, but I don't.V 15 Comments
Not true for some girls. I'm a girl and I listen mostly to female voices, I love powerful songs. I don't listen to one direction because all they sing about is loving a girl and blah blah blah blah... boring. (They don't even look good to me) I don't listen to male voices just because I find the singers attractive, I listen to them because I find the music attractive.
Um, I count more on music than looks, I don't find Billie Joe Armstrong attractive, but I love his music, the same is with a lot of the singers I like. I am fine with the singer being ugly just as long as they make good music. - AnimeDrawer
This only applies to guy musicians. So many Beliebers that are 13 years old because they like his look. They like boy bands even though they suck. I'm not saying this is all girls, but yeah
I like Olly Murs, Boy bands but I also still like the Spice Girls and I'm not bisexual and I don't care what male singers look like.V 11 Comments
This list is plain sexist. I'm honestly shocked that someone wold create a list this ridiculous.
Are you sure this isn't for Christians? Note I am Christian but still
I know a girl in my school who likes pop music and is scared of rock music. What? Some rock music is not even scary at all, I am not even scared of death metal, it is actually dope. What is so scary about rock music? Not all rock songs are harsh and involve screaming, plus, it's better than weak pop music that is too soft. - AnimeDrawer
Nothing to be scared of. Takes more talent to write a metal song than pop. Plus no auto tune
I actually happen to love screamo, so screw all the people who say it's in the lower end of the rock spectrum and the people who say girls are scared of rock and metal. However, why do most of the people who dis pop always compare it to rock and metal? There so many other genres like hip hop and R&B, country, edm, trance, techno, reggae, house music, and jazz and blues. There seems to be a major argument between pop and rock and now people think you're trash if you like one genre or the other. Can we just look at individual songs? The A Team's folk, and Little Lady is one of the most chillingly meaningful raps. I Believe I can fly is soul. Hey Ya!, which contrasts dark lyrics with a happy tune, is funk. Landslide's one of the songs that people can make a connection with, and the fact never changes no matter how many haters stereotype that country's about tractors and living it up at the farm.
Someone Like You was a pop song. How To Save a Life was a rock song. It okay to prefer ...more - iamawesomedog
I love pop music. But how is it that none of the items say "they like the songs? " I don't have posters, all male pop stars are jerks and who wears perfume? - AnonymousChick
I don't have a single poster in my room, mainly what I have is old toys I don't play with anymore, art supplies all over the table and sketchbooks rather than posters of 5 Seconds Of Summer or Justin Bieber. - AnimeDrawer
Besides the obvious sexist deteriorates going on here. I think one likes the music before the buying of the posters
The only posters I have in my room are my drawings. - Cartoonfan202V 3 Comments
This list is ridiculous. Not every girl likes pop music because of the guys. - Swellow
I like male rock singers more, thank you very much. - AnimeDrawer
I also like the male singers and producers because of the music, voice, and talent. Not the looks. - waraypiso
Yuck! The person who made this list is totally sexist and judgmentalV 6 Comments
This is the only one that makes sense to me.
I like to dance to all my favorite songs, no matter which genre it is. - AnimeDrawer
Even if you approve of this list you can't tell me that this makes any kind of sense
Why is this bad? - Cartoonfan202V 4 Comments
Ah yes. I was gonna get into metal but then I saw pop had perfume. I only choose the genre of music I like by whether or not they have perfume.
I do not like perfume, it smells too strong, the normal smell is the best in my opinion. I do not even care for artist's perfume I just think of it as "whatever". - AnimeDrawer
I don't wear their perfume. In the stores, I see that Britney Spears and Katy Perry and all them have their own perfumes. - Cartoonfan202
What's wrong with that? Applying perfume is fine unless some female employees annoyed you for some reasons by using it to you.
I'm going to avoid those smells ala Mr. Bean style if I we're you.
Now I disagree with how this list is named. I believe that it should be called "Top 10 Reasons Why Followers Like Pop Music". The sad truth is that pop music is marketed more towards girls than boys. More girls listen to pop music because pop is marketed towards them, and the followers among the girl population will listen to pop. These followers are simple minded, but there are many girls who are not. Some girls like rock and metal. (Or so they say. :P)
Boys totally love pop music and are just embarrassed in front of girls. My dad who is 46 likes Justin Bieber
They'll listen to anything the mainstream feeds them
This is sexist, stereotypical, and incorrect. I don't even know how to respondV 1 Comment
The unfortunate truth however this goes along with one of the higher rated reasons which is sex sells. So the companies invest in artists with sex appeal first talent second. Then they pay off the radio stations and magazines to advertise/play their music. It's not played often cause it's popular it's played often to make it popular. Then in order to keep up with demand for their artificially produce product(singer) they are forced to right songs in a time that is in humanly possible, so songs are written by multiple producers and songs are made simple and bland.
The one percent vote makes the most sense. Which is still like no sense at all but...
That is true. I do not understand how is it modern pop is everywhere I go. - waraypiso
Wait, what's wrong with this? Do you not go to rock and metal concerts?
So that boys can't go to concerts? I have never been to one before as my music sources are mostly Internet based. - MChkflaguard_Yt
I've actually never been to a concert yet. - Cartoonfan202
I’m going to an alternative concert in 81 days!V 1 Comment
This is just a stereotype. - waraypiso
That is just plain rude
He's not so bad after all. He seems like a pretty nice and neat guy though.
I guess girls like him because he is cute and talented.He is my favourite artist but this list is stupid
Magazines? I don't even read magazines, just to look at pictures of One Direction, Ross Lynch, and Justin Bieber, no thank you, I don't like that garbage. I much rather read books like The Outsiders or any good graphic books than to read magazines about girly boys that are called "hot",. - AnimeDrawer
I do it just to write complaint notes about it. Like this one!
Teenagers do that sometimes! XOXO
Girly girls in the UK often read mags like "Girl Talk" or "Go-Girl" about celebs like Justin Bieber and Little Mix.Some of them have way to much cheesy gossip
This is especially true for me. My sister will listen to Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj day in and day out and it drives me insane!
It just goes to show you that girls (and anybody) will listen to whatever piece of crap you bring out to them.
Soft music is boring, I like loud music with screaming and fun fast paced beats, that is way more fun. But sometimes I listen to soft music depending on the song. - AnimeDrawer
Soft music? Really? Boring, I like my music loud and fast paced, as well as energetic, not a song to sleep to. - AnimeDrawer
I hate soft music, it’s so boring.V 2 Comments
Who the hell do you think you are...
And not the reverse? I am a young 13 year old girl and I don't like pop. not all girls do.
I'm the same age and a girl too. Every pop song is always about love. *sigh*
This is why I don't like stuff like 5 Seconds Of Summer and One Direction. - AnimeDrawer
Young 13-year-old girls like pop.
Yeah, some pop music has catchy beats but the ones that don't have catchy beats, there are still people who drool over it - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I'm a girl and I love the tune of pop music. It makes me want to dance!
Yeah like Nicky minaj's sirens and cusswords are to die for.
Admittedly, I do like some songs for their catchyness, but some catchy songs are bad though. - AnimeDrawerV 1 Comment
I'm a girl and I hate most modern pop. Only few pop artists I ever liked. - waraypiso
Well, actually... I prefer rock and metal. And I'm a girl.
Not true, I'm a girl and I like Green Day and Panic! At The Disco. Shut the hell up. This is ridiculous... -_-
Not me, I want to meet good and talented musicians, so they can talk to me about how they play their instruments or who had they been influenced by, not some stupid cute boys that are only popular for their looks. - AnimeDrawer
They wanna have sex with Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, and Adam Levine
Please stop bashing girls! Only brainwashed girls like them! There are so many girls who like other genres. - Stoplookingatmyname
HEY! NO FAIR! DYNASTI IS TOO AUTISTIC TO BE TRUE BITCH!
I don't understand these kids nowadays just keep on listening or singing crappy ass top hit songs. These bother me wherever I go or to hang out with my siblings or classmates including my former ones. - waraypiso
Their friends all listen to pop so they do to fit in, and they rarely find out there is better music out there than the crap that's being force fed through their ears.
Just pointing it out, not in favor of pop music or anything, but usually Autotune is used to correct pitches subtly. Autotune doesn't necessarily mean that the s/he is a bad singer. It can also be used to give the human voice something that isn't that human (haha, if that makes sense), which can make things more emotional, or some other feeling. One thing though...it can't really fix a singer is really bad to begin with.
Sorry for the wordiness.
Even the crappiest songs have some great production; can't argue with that.
The record label makes pop "singers" use auto-tune
That's not true. I'm a female I listen to hard rock all the time. I'm not really a metal head but I listen to it sometimes. By the way pop does suck. I really hate Justin Bieber, fifth harmony, 1D,Taylor Swift, etc. It's garbage.
I don't listen to the radio, most of the music on the radio sucks, there are barely any good rock songs on the radio and most of it is country and pop, boring. - AnimeDrawer
It's sad they don't have more of a variety on the radio...
I am a female and I am a fan of electronic soul music (labels like SOULECTION, HW&W, Deep Heads, Soultiquette, Féte). I also started listening to some kinds of metal and rock music, and I am a teenager and not a fan of most modern pop music anymore since 2017. I also like and influence a good hip-hop/rap music, trap, jazz, R&B, blues, real country (not country pop), folks, Bossa Nova, Chillhop, Vaporwave, funk, soul, gospel, primal music, pre-colonial music, old house music, jazz house music, Ambient, Ambient trap, and old pop music (20th Century music). - waraypiso
