The vast majority of songs from 20 years ago wouldn't be hits today imo. Even most hits from just 5 years ago wouldn't be big hits today. It would probably be easier to name which songs would still...

I agree with you. The average age of a One Direction fan is probably older than most people would assume.

However, it is worth noting that Youtube's age statistics can be mis-leading, since a lot of...

I don't think I've ever heard a song specifically about abortion.

But in Hate It Or Love It by The Game/50 Cent, there's a part where The Game says he's lucky to be alive as his mother could have...

Alexandra will have a difficult time getting recognized as an R&B singer since she spent most of her career so far doing dance-pop.

Daley is a good UK R&B singer, but he seems to have more success...

Why is it so shocking to people that he's still rich? Of course he would be. Have people forgotten how many hits he had? Even if he didn't invest his money he'd probably be well off.

I think their new album isn't as good as their previous, but it's still got some great tunes.

Chase & Status and Modestep are good. They're not doing generic pop music like David and Calvin. Not all of Chase & Status's songs have tunes though. Have you ever heard Hitz? :D

I'm a big surprised a DJ looks at the Radio 1 playlist for songs to play lol. I guess it's worth a look at, but it's not that important.
