Agreed. Here is a typical recent pop standard. The only part that has a groove is the human part - the vocals. The synthesizer is ridiculously simple, and the drums must have been programmed by a friggin clown, because they are a comedy of lifeless automation:

I wonder if the whole composition wasn't written a capella, and the producer just slapped the musical crap together in a few hours by himself.
