Re: My rant on today's pop music
KC and the Sunshine Band was a pop hit machine back in the late 70s. Three Dog Night was the same in the early 70s. Hall & Oates was the same in the late 70s/early 80s. I try to listen to their songs objectively to see how they compare to the pop hits made over the last 5 years.
There isn't a whole lot to compare, although KC's formula for success consisted of a very simple song structure, lots of repetition, a few horns, and a danceable groove. I'd still rather listen to a song like Boogie Shoes than most of today's pop songs.
