    DO THIS EVERY MONTH OR TWO! Would also be cool if you analysed and took requests of newer modern day artists like Travis Scott, The Weeknd, Harry Styles, Tame Impala, etc

    Here is my last important question that is the real test of a great tune. How many of these top 10 will people being listening to 40 years from now?

  • Adrian Reyes

    Rick, is it that Listeners today have dropped their standards, or that the powers that be that decide AirPlay have just imposed substandard melodies on us? I know millions of listeners love this (not me), but are they just being fed Salisbury steak, and being withheld the Ribeyes? I agree, a few tunes are very catchy, but most are canned cr&$

    Listening to the Top 10 for "the sonics of it", is a bit like reading Playboy for the articles.

    the top 10 tracks don't describe all modern music, there's other music than this that's actually good. It's out there, you just have to look for it a little longer.

  • AssShaker Studios

    LMFAO! Yep. They copy everything! You should listen to some JayZ...his copy is crazy! And why is Auto-Tune on everyfucking thing! It sucks ass!

    I love this guy. He is the perfect example of being versatile, breaking down some modern pop music. I believe some modern non-pop songs are actually good it's just not our taste and we are living in the past way too much. Pop music is just not serious, it suddenly gets famous and it suddenly disappears. But some decent modern bands (the late 90s till today) like Black Keys, White Stripes (+many alt.rock early 21st century bands), Kasabian, MGMT, Khruangbin, The Raconteurs, Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Brian Jonestown Massacre,.... are out there and get ignored by classic rock music snobs. (I even didn't mention many good modern jazz or blues bands and artists) I really wish people would listen to some modern rock music, some of them are crazy good. especially in psychedelic /progressive rock and also in Indie/Alternative rock music. Let's not forget that this top 10 only applies to the USA. Most bands are making a different approach because the old fashioned long technical guitar solos and power chords are being overplayed. With this new approach, you'll see many Gen-Z would listen to good music.

  • Matt G

    Sounded like 8 out of those 10 songs were nearly the same tempo and featured a four chord progression that repeats and...that's it. That's exactly why 90% of chart music sounds boring to me these days. What happened to verses, choruses, bridges, middle-8's, key changes? What happened to variety?!

    Him: “Song two is cool. It’s got a cool riff. Fat back end. Nice melody.” Me: “This song is boring as f**k wtf is this lame crap.”

    I feel as a producer it should be known most people listen to garbage.

    As far as today's pop goes, I think they're repeating what happened in the 50's with pop. And eventually, listeners will want to hear something different. I hope that this time around, there will be musicians that shake things up enough to be more popular than the generic pop. Back in the 60s, it was the underground club scene, the back corner of the record shop, and bootlegs. Now it's gonna be social media (if the algorithms don't strangle the original stuff to death).

    So here's something I'd like to see. Pick a computer-generated random number between 1 and 3,650. That's your day of the decade (eg the 1980s). Go back and find the Billboard or whatever chart for that point in time, and break down those top 10 songs. It'll be a cool little slice of time, and maybe dig up some songs that were really big for a moment but became lost in time.

    That lick in the beginning of the Jason Derulo song irritates me to no end just like River Flows In You

    You know there was a study made to prove that music got worse and worse as time passed and Cardi B is a living proof of that

    bunch of junk!!!


    Dude I'm loving this idea of going through the top 10s. I would like to see more

  • MrKankuamo

    I agree that there is production value and something to appreciate about these songs. However, that might make them a good product, not necessarily a good song. A lot of popular music before and now are consumable goods, perishable.

    At this moment, I'm listening to "Drop Dead Legs" by Van Halen! 👍 The difference between music today and yesterday is, in most cases, it had (and still does) a positive effect on multiple generations. Music should make us feel good, if it doesn't, forget about it! If music gave off a fragrance, the older stuff still is like a "breath of fresh air", while today's music smells like "@ss" and with an overwhelming dose of "bad foot odor"! 😜 👍

    1:25 The lyrics are... what should I say.. Me: Garbage? I’m trying, God I’m trying to appreciate today’s trending music... but it’s so hard. Still I know that are a few gold pebbles among the mud. I’m sorry I’m trying not to be negative, and actually I’m constantly looking for new talent, just as Rick does. The effort of most of them is so little, so little invested, the only way to be transgressive is to throw random bad words to sound edgy yet the music is so safe. I grab The Clash’s London Calling or Run DMC, or Pixies and the contrast is huge. But I’m trying not to be like a cranky grandpa. There’s still cool stuff.

  • XEdgeRenegade666

    Truly speaking, this music mastermind is making all shitty modern songs look a little classy... lmao 🤣

    Before every great empire fell their art suffered first. This is most notable in ancient Greek sculpture. It really is an amazing thing to dig into. It'll blow your damn mind because it happens to ALL of them. From Rome to Beijing. Minus the Mongols. Those guys were...different.

    I should really learn music theory, it's so impressive seeing how he just hears the song and instantly knows the chords/progression...meanwhile I'm struggling at bending on an accoustic haha

    I really hope RHCP sues the artist of that Lemonade song. When Rick played I was like “hey wait a minute that sounds like a chili peppers lick.” Like cmon it’s in the same key, almost the same exact guitar part. It’s horrible

    Ok so I do NOT listen to new music...I usually find songs that I like after the fact. And I have never listened to a Cardi B song ever...so thanks for that Rick...I have lost IQ points for that.....

  • Paul Anderson

    Out of 100 songs, 3 are just okay, which means the other 97 are WSCrap the internet has ruined peoples ability to create music worth listening to, no imagination amateur style computerized vocals and copy cat regurgitation, my generation produced The Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Rollin Stones, Fournier, The Eagles, Van Halen and countless numbers of other mega superstars without an iPhone or the internet, this generation produced Justin Beber and Wet Ass *ussy all of them pretty much forgettable if only there was a hot tub time machine, I'd go back.
