What are some good popular songs besides the ones on itunes top 100?
Some of these may be in the iTunes Top 100 but there are some good songs here you may like:
Akon - Beautiful
Rihanna feat. The-Dream - Hatin' On The Club
Rihanna feat. Chris Brown - Bad Girl
Ciara feat. Chris Brown - Turntables (with gay talking but its not too bad)
Lady GaGa feat. Kardinal Offishal - Just Dance (RedOne Remix)
Ciara feat. Justin Timberlake - Love Sex Magic
The-Dream feat. Kanye West - Walking on the Moon
Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow
Busta Rhymes feat. Estelle (but it sounds nothing like Estelle) - Make the World Go Round
Lil Mama - I'm A Diva
And check out Kanye West - Street Lights (it's a bit of a dance record with a good beat and one of the best songs of his career - listen to the lyrics they are so deep and profound).
Why is the iTunes top 100 infested with Michael Jackson songs?
People who may not have had his music might be trying to rediscover him and/or relive their youth through his music. Whenever there is hype/large media coverage about something, people always feed into it and get excited, thus the spike in sales :)
It has nothing to do with Apple, they had his songs long before he died and the only reason they are so prominent now is because people are buying them.
Why is it that everything on the itunes top 100 sucks?
I have a theory that a lot of artists today are just the kids of wealthy parents who can afford to make them rock stars regardless of their talent. Thus what we are sold as top 100 is really the top 100 spoiled brats in America.
Not all artists are like this, but when you think about the talentless hacks like Li'l Wayne or that H0!3 (something like that) group, or perhaps Miley Cyrus (who has a direct correlation to a wealthy, established father) it all starts to make sense.
However, there is plenty of good music out today, you just have to avoid the mainstream outlets that might lead you to believe otherwise. I recommend you use the internet to your advantage- use youtube, wikipedia, maybe find a music based message board and see what the music fanatics are listening to and perhaps join and ask for some recommendations.
You will find good music- you just have to search for it these days.
So I have heard from a lot that the theme next week on American Idol, is iTunes Top 100.?
My faves are Adam and Allison.
One of them has to do So What by Pink. That'd be awesome.
Or if Adam did something unexpected like Journey or Bon Jovi or Justin Timberlake, or even Lady GaGa.
Or if Allison did Livin on a Prayer.
It's tough to pick for them, because it seems when they DO pick a song that would suit them, it turns out as a disappointment in the performance, cuz we're expecting them to make it their OWN, and not just cover a song and do a sound-a-like. So maybe when they pick something totally way out there, and then it's easier to make it different.
I really wish Megan would get someone who could really really help her tune into her talent that's being made a mess on the show. She's lost and trying too hard I think. It's in there somewhere though, she needs direction, a vocal coach, and some really good advice on picking songs.
