For me no. I have to look at the 21-30 and I like Jessie J & Gavin DeGraw.

Re: Billboard Hot 100...

I have only heard one song off that list, the second one by Adele, Someone Like You. I don't listen to her currently, but I am toying with the notion of buying her current album as everything I have heard from it has been excellent.

I have never heard of most of the rest of the list. I only know Bruno Mars from watching his performance with Janelle Monae at the Grammys on youtube. I have heard of Rihanna, Katy Perry, Jay-Z and Kanye West, but I don't know their music. The rest, no idea.

Re: Billboard Hot 100...

My wife and oldest daughter like Adele and I found I don't dislike her. The other one I listen to is "Party Rock Anthem" but that's because it became an earworm after seeing the Halloween house that synchronized its lights to that it.

More often than not, I listen to music or podcasts on my iPod instead of current radio.

To paraphrase Leslie Knope, the thing about music today is that I don't get it.

"Someone Like You" by Adele is the only one I've heard, and I can safely say that I am fucking sick of it.

Not really, with the exception being Adele. Haven't listened to those two songs by her yet... but I do like 'Rolling in the deep'.

Re: Billboard Hot 100...

Almost all are played on the station my wife listens to while we commute to work. So I would have to say I listen to them. Though even my wife goes for the presets when Katy Perry's no single is on. I only voted for the ones I recognized though. The others might be on the stations playlist, but I the titles and artists didn't ring a bell.

The only song on that list I've heard is Adele's "Someone Like You," but I mainly know it from it's cover on GLEE.

No. But then, you probably knew that.

I have less than zero interest in any of the above 'talents'. In fact, just for grins, I went through the entire top 50 songs that were accessible at that link, and I did not find a single artist I was interested in.

Now, just for the sake of discussion, if you go over to the Billboard Top 200 Albums, I do own the following from among the top 100 visible:

7. El Camino - The Black Keys
28. Sigh No More - Mumford & Sons
47. American Capitalist - Five Finger Death Punch
55. 1 - The Beatles
61. Greatest Hits - Guns N Roses
86. The Lost Children - Disturbed
88. Wasting Light - Foo Fighters
91. Brothers - The Black Keys

I am also interested in perhaps purchasing one or both of the Florence + The Machine records on the list, but have not done so yet. And I might pick up Bon Iver - haven't decided yet.

Re: Billboard Hot 100...

Just the two adele songs at this point. I'm actually getting really annoyed with anything LMFAO (Or whatever they are called) puts out (That Party Rock Anthem is not as good as people say it is) and the We Found Love song might have just become the most overplayed and overrated song right now. Actually, I'm just getting tired of what radio is bringing out anyway, so I mostly stick to podcasts and music that I've bought, but I do try to keep current with what people are listening to.

Re: Billboard Hot 100...

I do not listen any of those artists mentioned in the Top 10 and honestly I can barely recognize many of the names.
I do know of what Rihanna Looks like and that Katy Perry has a nice set of boobs..that is about it then.

Re: Billboard Hot 100...

Shockingly enough, I actually do know most of those songs, with the exception of the Bruno Mars and Kanye West one. My boyfriend likes to listen to radio stations that play many of these songs, and I have a 15 year old sister, so she played almost all of these songs several times when I was over at my parents' house for the holidays. Now, whether I actually like any of these songs is a different matter entirely - "Party Rock Anthem," "Stereo Hearts," and "Sexy and I Know It" are kind of catchy, but I would never purposely seek them out. I really can't stand anything by Rihanna or Katy Perry. I did like Adele's music at first, but it is so overplayed now that I can't bear to listen to it anymore.

sorry, but no, continued exposure to anything on that list would lead to bleeding ears
