I'd say it got worse. 2015 to 2017 became Drake and Sheeran heavy. At least 2014 is all POP.

That said I despise Happy.

Dark Horse and All of Me are the only two I like, but I somewhat ‘respect’ most of the others as being pretty good for what they are even if I wouldn’t actively listen to them.

Yeah that’s a bit harsh, I know all of them well, which I’m sure is more than I can say about later years.

Not to say I like all of them

Hideaway was the only highlight of 2014, and then it all turned to dog shit until Dua turned up three years later.

I think 2014 was a pretty good year, but that is not a great list of songs that made the Billboard top 10 for the year.

2014 >>> 2015-2019
2020 and 2021 were better though

From that list I like Dark Horse and Talk Dirty. And I LOVE Waves from the UK list

Most of the great stuff in 2014 wasn't in the charts. I do mentally consider 2015 to essentially be the last HURRAH for actually great chart stuff - now THAT year was a classic :disco:

Personally, that would be 2019, shortly before TikTok overtook the way people consume music and dictated what's cool and what's not when it comes to "new" music :(
