So good! You should do it every month, Rick! Also, you could try the 50 viral songs too, or the 50 from some random country. It could be really interesting.

Why do most all modern female singers sound like they're a junior high drama diva trying squeeze every drop of manufactured angst out of a raspy, emotionally immature voice? Is it some deluded attempt to make listeners think they're "oh so talented and deep"? It's the American Idol Effect, I guess. These chicks oughta take a listen to Annie Lennox, Carly Simon, Patsy Cline, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Tina Turner or Delores O'Riordan if they want a lesson on this thing called "singing".....

The Eilish tune is a lift of The Turtles' "You Showed Me" from '66 (which was lifted by Klaatu in 1974 on their "Dr. Marvello" single....and then sampled in the early 2000s by 50 Cent & G-Unit for "Lay Your Ass Down")

I took my kid to see Justin Beiber a few years ago, and in the middle of hos show, he played a half dozen songs alone on guitar. I wish some of the biggest names in pop would start a trend and put out full albums featuring a band (at most) the size of maybe a disco band (at least) a single instrument and combine good pop voices with raw instrumentation. Imagine Ariana Grande, a mic, and a piano playing for 42-45 minutes.

I would love to hear some real musicianship again. I know there's talented artists out there but IDK if it's the record labels or the autotuning or production of these songs. But they all sound alike to me. Boring and pedantic.

I think music makers are starting to wake up to how much influence youtube channels have on what becomes popular. Back in the day, artists would hope to get radio play, now reaction videos and influencers are able to turn viewers on to what they've heard. They should consider that when they're blocking and de-monitizing.

100% agree that music has been trending in a better direction IMO. Right now there’s a lot of stuff that’s not super creative but still good and I think that opens up the avenues for real innovation in songwriting to come through

When I was a teen, I swore I'd never been "old" like my parents, not knowing any current music. And I did pretty well up until my 30s maybe 40s. 52 now and I just... don't care. I can't stand most of this stuff. God bless you, Rick! I guess I'm just old for real! What I can't take is the electronic-y sounding "singing".

in Driver’s License, is that sharp 4 not just a leading tone? sounds like the note she sings/the note you isolated on the guitar was an A natural (ti in the key of B flat) rather than E natural (fi in the key of B flat). if i’m missing something please let me know!!

watching your videos for a while, i think i figured out why your record label didn't do well. you know the difference between crap music and good music, while the top ten proves most of america doesn't. pretty much you have too good of taste.

that #1 song, the vocal melody sounds way too familiar, especially over that sharp iv... give me a while i'll think of what it's similar to. im not saying plagiarism just the sense of familiarity helps it to strike a chord that another song had created.

I didn't find Justin Bieber's song that cool or wierd, actually as I repeat it in my head it throws me right to Shook Me All Night Long. edit: Ariana Grande's one you could pretty casually add a funky bass line to. I don't remember that song with a guitar - basically a campfire a song . That Billie Eilish one was cool. The other JB and SM one I found myself grooving to immediately, uncontrolable. Didn't care much for the others but I'll probably play around with the last one.

Hi Rick, I just had a great idea. Wouldn't it be cool to get the multitrack tapes of people like Bob Dylan Neil Young and even though it occurred before multi-tracking Billie Holiday. The reason I say that I would love to hear what their vocals put through auto-tune would sound like! How great would that be?
