Yeah, Usher is okay. It was just that his video was on two different music channels on the radio when I turned it on, and I was very mad. Beyonce is talented as well, just OVERSATURATED.
Snowflakegirl, I agree that Good Charloette is not all that. They are just the poster children for people who want to be "true punk rockers!!!!" (which is annoying).
I don't even think that "Flap Your Wings" have a good beat. Rap music has gotten so terrible in the past few years.
Another group I hate-Jet. Grrrrrrr. They annoy me beyond belief.
and buying the posters for themselves :rolleyes

I think the 'Reason' behind 'The Reason' being so popular is because 1. it rhymes very nicely and 2. its very general, not talking about a 'he' or a 'she' therefore both guys and girls can relate to the song.
Whenever I hear the song on the radio now, I replace the word 'Reason' with 'Raisin' and it makes the song much funnier and enjoyable.
I like a lot of mainstream music these days. But its not because their mainstream, its because I honestly love listening to them.
Jazz, classic, rock, abd blues were popular when our parents were growing up so they like listenint to these type of music. A lot of kids my age like listening to pop, rock, punk, rap, hip hop, and etc. Maybe there'll cone a time when us teens'll all be grey and old and the next generation of kids will roll their eyes at what we listen to. :lol
Me neither. The song that annoys me the most would be "Confessions." This guy is asking his girlfriend to forgive him for sleeping with a "chick on the side" and getting her pregnant. I mean, what the hell? Why would you even have a "chick on the side" if you already have this "woman you love"?

I regret that I sound so judgemental in my first post. Music is incredibly subjective, so it's okay to love whatever resonates with you, whatever it may be, whether it's Franz Ferdinand or Neil Diamond. I know some of the music I love would raise some eyebrows if I played it at a party, so I'm the last one to talk.
Really, I think my big beef is the awful tendency for radio stations (many of whom are owned by one corporate entity anyway), music television, the media, and popular tastemakers to run certain songs into the frickin' ground!!! Like they all sat there in a big boarding room and said to themselves, "Everyone's gonna love 'Let's Get It Started'! Everyone! Let's play it on every station, even the country and Christian ones! At a sporting event! In a tampon commercial!"
Well you know what, I happen to love the Blackeyed Peas. Furthermore, I used to really love "Let's Get Retarded." I loved it! My booty could not stop shakin' to it. Well, after the past few months of hearing "Let's Get It Started" (which I regard as a bastardization of the original anyway), I want to beat my head against a sharp object to get it out!
Or Outkast--I love Outkast BIG TIME! But "Hey Ya" was shoved down my throat at every turn. Totally killed it for me!
Anyway, sorry, that is my rant about the corporatized ubiquity of popular music. And please, listen to whatever you love, don't think I'm making a personal judgement on you. That's as long as you can deal with me occasionally blasting Skinny Puppy after listening to Within Temptation after bopping out to Blur. :teeth

Personally, I like most of the songs on the radio, but after a while it gets drilled so far in your head you want to barf. (Get Low, anyone?)
People like songs for different reasons. Some for the actual music, some for the lyrics, some for the image the singer portrays (good or bad), most for a combination. The only station I listen to is NPR, I leave the music selection to myself, not the local DJ.
It's not even the local DJ, Z, the music is predetermined by entertainment juggernaut Clear Channel and associates! That's why radio stations everywhere all sound the same!
I would just rather listen to any sort of talk radio while in the car, mostly because the songs that come on the radio are never the songs I look for. I once kept it tuned to KROQ for half a day and never got to one song I liked. So I just figured, I'd give up on music radio.
