It’s not an illusion, pop music really is worse than ever.

~ It’s not because you’re “old,” or a “hipster” that pop music throughout the 2000’s sounds boringly similar.  Turns out the majority of hit pop songs are not actually written by Taylor Swift and the various other stars, but cranked out by a handful of anonymous European producers, according to a nearly mathematical formula.  Amazingly, it’s been the same clique since the late nineties writing most of the songs.

~ Read the details here and here, and learn the names of the real “pop stars.”  Then kick back with some seventies vinyls and you’ll feel much better.

~ Thanks to the Atlantic and the New Yorker for the articles, speaking of old school quality.
