Lorde is all I really turn up if i'm listening to a Top 40 station.

Although i'm usually listening to either my own music or a sirius station.
Hit me up on twitter.

Animals by Martin Garrix is a good song, but it's absolutely nothing compared to the variety you can find in the EDM scene. There are many great songs out there in that vast realm. I'm not saying it's a bad song, just that if you get into that, you'll see there is so much yet to be discovered.

Anyways, right now, I can't really tell. I know The Neighbourhood are pretty popular in what they do and I'm really in love with what they do. Lorde is also really good.

Happy to see my fave song by lorde is number nine, Team will slay

Animals is the first popular song I've heard thats EDM that ISNT Avicii, Zedd, or Skrillex. Not so much an EDM person, but I like every now and then

Tomorrow I will go and find some Neighbourhood songs ;)



Also found that Unconditionally is REALLY good in my taste. And, side note with Maroon 5, Projcect Daylight made me cry.

If you like Indie Rock/Pop you might like The Neighbourhood or if you're just open to any type of music. I never was a fan of indie rock/pop but I must say they did pretty well lol. I instantly got hooked to their music. :P

I mean, like what popular songs actually DESERVE to be up there and is good and shows the future of music is bright and yes I am aware I used and like ten times and that this sentence is really long.

I was going through my Itunes Library and I stumbled upon Capital Cities' ''Safe and Sound'' which is a song I absolutely love and don't mind listening to it over and over again (at some extent, I'll try not to abuse).

i think you're forgetting musical taste is subjective and whether it's "good" or not is left up to the listener

Like others mentioned, I thoroughly enjoy Lorde's music, notable Team and Buzzcut Season. I'd also mention some of Adele's songs like Skyfall.

I think you're forgetting just because something is subjective doesn't mean good and bad are negated.

Well I don't imagine so I will see for myself - HJ

I can easily say something is bad because I don't like it.
