Top Ten Words You Always Hear In Pop Songs

BKAllmighty
Popular music has, and pardon me for saying this, deteriorated in recent decades. It has. I'm sorry. The key demographic has gone from teens and young adults (both sexes) to pre-teens (mostly girls). The facts are out there, people. This list compiles the words and phrases that are present in almost every pop song written these days. Please note that some of these examples predate modern pop music, but have either remained popular or become a lot more common in recent decades.

The Top Ten

1 Babe / Baby

This one has been popular for basically 100 years. It will probably never go away. - BKAllmighty

2 Whoa

As in "whoa oh oh". I am so sick of hearing this. - BKAllmighty

3 Yeah

Hip-hop as well, because they just can't think of anything good to say. - PositronWildhawk

4 F***

I am genuinely sick of songs that pepper themselves with this word. It's not necessary. - BKAllmighty

5 Dance

Ever notice how many songs talk about meeting women on dance floors, lusting over their bodies, taking them home, and sleeping with them? It's a shallow world we live in, isn't it? - BKAllmighty

6 Hell
7 Girl V 1 Comment
8 Tonight

Everything is about the NOW. Nobody seems to care about the future when sex is involved. That's a highly-developed species for you. - BKAllmighty

Gotta admit, singing "We're gonna get there tomorrow night" doesn't sound that exciting. But you do have a point. Singing about something you know will happen with hope is what I find to be more supportive. - PositronWildhawk

9 Hey

Yet another filler word. You barely needed these back in the 60's and 70's when songs consisted of words that meant something. - BKAllmighty

10 Die

Not a great word to use a lot. But it's used plenty. - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11 Sex

Aren't there better things to talk about in music?

12 N****

It doesn't make you look hard. It makes you look like a muppet.

13 Not
14 Yourself
