Have you guys realized Pop music has been getting sadder?

Music getting sadder…

Pop Music in definition is up-beat, fun and at times quite dance-like.

“By definition pop is extremely catchy, whether you like it or not,”
– Kurt Cobain

The Beatles’ “Twist and shout” came at the beginning of their career. It is up-beat, happy and will want to make you want to get up on your feet! The genre they portrayed was classic however some songs had a pop feeling to them.

Most pop singers now are on the other hand are not your typic up-beat. Listen to the lyrics: Sad and most of the time about breaking up.

I never said the Beatles didn’t have their sad songs or songs about breaking up but they are legends because of the music they have written, and

try listening to 60s pop and pop now.
Here comes the sun and so happy together (also Beatles songs) may not be as up beat as twist and shout but are not as depressing… There’s a light at the end of the songs rainbow.

Other genres such as R/B , Hip hop, country, etc have had a change, maybe not as dramatic as this one.
