I'm now an old cow and today's pop doesn't do it for me. As far as I'm concerned, pop started going downhill with the machines. There's some good machine music out there, but most sounds like formulaic blah to me.
im just so irritated by pop music latley, ive made an effort to get over my "metal is the best" elitest attitude but the more i listen to it the more i see boring one two one two beats and assinine lyrics. for the most part pop imo has no heart, no soul, and its intelligence is far from being beyong reproach, it just seems to cater to the lowest common denominator. but i should have specified "todays" pop music.
