Do these stock modern songs even feature a bridge or a middle 8 any more? It seems like they mostly just go: 'verse x4, chorus x2, [insert drop at some point], rinse and repeat' (with often little variation between the chord structures of the verse and chorus (such as they are)).

Got tired after hearing the first two songs. Modern pop could be so much more interesting to listen to. Punch Brothers have kind of a pop thing going for them, using the freedom of todays pop music to do advanced rythm and signature changes. This sounds like a talented teenager's first band with lots more expensive post production? Production is impressive although nothing innovative whatsoever, musically this is totally elementary. Rick, what do you honestly think about these first two songs?

I remember when a lot of people (including myself at the time) hopped on the "Billie Eilish will be the downfall of melody in modern music" train after bad guy released. Many jazz musicians were especially up in arms against her. I've since completely hopped off that train as I realized that Billie Eilish has an extremely broad pallet of musical flavors to offer. I converted after hearing her ballad like tune "my future". I've been a fan ever since. Her entire artistic approach and demeanor is so respectable, and I regret jumping on a cancel culture train so fast in the past.

Hi Rick, I envy you. Although I am from rock and find these pop songs you shared are of dubious taste, they are immensely more audible than the garbage that plays on Brazilian radio and the media in general. And to think that we already had as wonderful representatives of our MPB (Brazillian Pop Music) like Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, .. and even in rock as Mutantes, Titãs, Paralamas do Sucesso, Legião Urbana. Today we are hostages of Sertanejo Universitário (a tacky and fake country music), funk from the favelas of Rio and gospel music. With the exception of 2 or 3 radios, the rest of the media will only play these garbage. Congratulations on the great channel.

The older I get the less I can stand the latest and greatest pop music. I listened to the Billie Eilish song that won all the awards... and was like 'seriously'? Mumbling over a house beat? I hated it. But I suppose my parents hated what I liked back in the day as well.

Ariana Grande's music is completely bullshit. Change my mind. Her vocals are really good, but the beats and the construction of all the songs are more or less the same.
badKAPAV پیش ساعت
@izdihar that album is fine. But positions suck! Not a single song makes sense. In every song, she just mumbles around and the beats feel the same

positions is kinda meh yea i agree. thank u next still remains her best work yet.

You are being very graceful to these songs. I Find them like annoying whinny extended TV commercials with a lack of creative; just throwing sound bites against the wall that reek of novelty and inane substance. The bar is so low that any interesting chord or movement makes Rick give it a positive spin.

I find it interesting that u refer to the relative minor as chord vi and not chord i - when the tonal centre is on the minor. (If that makes sense) is it perhaps because u are being traditional in the classical sense and would only refer to a minor chord i - when the 7th note in the key is sharp? (Harmonic minor key area) or perhaps just for the sake of simplicity? I enjoy these videos, I also am impressed when I hear unique ideas in hyper famous popular music.

Driver's licence was unexpectedly good. I think Justin Beiber's was pretty bad honestly. I guess the rhythm's kinda cool but I wouldn't say that's good or achieving anything.

Kind of a surprise that #1 and #2 are not uptempo, and Driver’s License is not a ballad - or is it. The singer is quite good, too. She gives us lots of feeling. I think the slower tempos are result of us all being in lock down, and just chilling with our music listening. And Billie & Fineas’ new one, wow. And, thank you for breaking down the changes.

There are actually good artists out there, but I don't know about the charts per se... you really have to hunt them down. I get most of my good recommendations from fellow musicians. If not for them, I'd still be bingeing on Zeppelin and Stevie Wonder all day.

Pop is always going to be made of professional artists/producers/arrangers who are dedicated to releasing the best tracks from top talent...because their reputation and pay depend on it. We shouldn't be surprised with the result, especially from the top of the charts.

Uplifting songs with minor chords are my thing! Rick, I remember back in 2004-2006 (when a I was in my late childhood, early teenager years) there were many songs like that; pop, rock songs that were very catchy, sometimes energetic, or relaxing slow songs, even electronic music and with minor chords, I really loved that. Just take a look into the hits from that era.

I really think you should deduct points for sameness/lack of originality. Most of these songs sounded more or less the same. A top 10 in the 80s or 90s would have radical differences like comparing Def Leppard to Cheryl Crow to Michael Jackson. This stuff (with one or two exceptions) is all the same.
Robert Ruork

Apart from the first song, the rest is just more of the same repetitive, simplistic, self-similar, recursive, unmelodic CRAP of the past 20 years that has caused me to despair as to how "pop"ular music will ever recover from this malaise -- and I don't give a flying f*** how well-produced they are!
