Your unpopular pop opinions

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Mvnl, Nov 2, 2007.

  1. I love love love that Nicki rap. It was crazy good when she was featured on her Femme Fatale Vegas date I've been to. She came out halfway through the song just before the last Chorus. Which is a way better placement than at the beginning. The last chrous hits even harder after it.
    No. But it's one of her best ever.
  2. It's a 10/10 but although this is the unpopular opinion thread this cannot be ignored. Mainly because it's not even an unpopular opinion. It's plain wrong.

  3. I like Till The World Ends quite a lot but I still believe Hold It Against Me is the best Britney single from the "Robotney" years. In fact, only Gimme More and Break the Ice can rival it for me as her best post-teen pop era singles.

  4. I love how you're an 11 on the stannage scale right now, but at the same time are telling absolutely zero lies.

  5. You will only catch me like this for Madge. I realise I don't stan anyone else (pop-wise) because if I did, I'd...I'd know. You'd all know. I don't know if I've had anyone else as my avatar bar a joke Rira Ora one and some comic characters. If I did...It was all a blur.

  6. Born To Die despite being very good is Lana's weakest album... by's still a sold 8 but the others are 11s.
  7. I'm all here for JT's peculiar long tracks, and I never even think about skipping parts.
  8. I think Timberlake is a much more innovative popstar than people make out, and doesn't deserve some of the ridicule he gets.

  9. I think Where Have You Been is one of Rihanna's worst singles.

    It'd be easy to say Robyn isn't that great but I don't necessarily believe that. But goddamn, her 2000's music has aged so horribly. I remember getting my life at the time but now I just recoil at the sound of those clunky synths. It's odd. I don't know.

  11. This video.. yikes.

  13. Femme Fatale is a great album. It's very 2011 but I still get a lot of use out of it.

    Talk That Talk & Unapologetic are both decent enough. Loud was cute at the time and her hair was iconic but the album has aged horribly. We Found Love & Where Have You Been also sound incredibly dated these days. Cheers is a great song. Phresh Out the Runway is one of the best things Rihanna has put her name to.

  14. I appreciate The Beatles and what they achieved and their influence/legacy. BUT listening to their so-called "best albums ever created" I can't say they shook my brain and opinions like David Bowie or Joni Mitchell did.

  16. They just don't connect with the gheys, and that's fine I think. Especially not like the true gods Bowie and Mitchell. But I periodically forget they exist, let alone ever consider listening past what I already know. I have the white album. Oh maybe it's Revolver. Are they the same? I like Eleanor Rigby.
    I have the red vinyl version of Abbey Road. A gift. Shrug. Influence undeniable. Do I care? Not a jot.

  17. I hate most almost everything Beyoncé put her name to prior to the self-titled album - Crazy In Love, Irreplaceable, Single Ladies, Love On Top etc. With that said, I fucking adore the fifty shades remix of Crazy In Love.

    I also haven't listened to Lemonade in full, but dislike most of what I've heard with the exception of Formation.

    This is me. I cannot get with those layered WALL OF VOCALS choruses. I'm glad she finally moved away from that formula.
  19. Honeymoon is unfairly & severely underrated.

    I mean, honestly...

  20. Whitney Houston was a more natural actress than Madonna. Evita is highly overrated. Desperately Seeking Susan is cute in a dated kind of way but Madonna is more or less playing herself.

    Madonna is more of an entertainer than a singer. She could never stand on stage with a microphone, a band and backing singers for two hours a night for six months. It's not her thing. She lives for the dancing, the props and the effects.The spectacle of her shows comes from the sheer size of the production rather than her voice.

    I doubt anyone, not even Madonna, will ever beat Cher's record for being the oldest female artist to have a number-one single. She was 52 when Believe was released in 1998. Tina Turner was nearly 60 when she had another top 10 entry in the U.K. with When the Heartache Is Over. Madonna was 49 when she had a U.K. number one with 4 Minutes, the same age Kylie Minogue is this year, but you have to take into consideration the ten-year age gap and the fact that Madonna released her first album in 1983 rather than 1988. Madonna benefited from releasing Confessions on a Dance Floor and Hard Candy at a time when the industry and radio stations weren't so ageist and when streaming didn't rule the charts. No one can expect Kylie Minogue and other artists her age to have a number one single in 2017 when it's no longer possible for a Madonna single to make the top 20. It's unrealistic and unfair to compare. The success of Believe (11 million copies sold worldwide) is even more impressive when you consider it was released before downloads came along. I think it's fair to say Hung Up only sold nine million copies because people could download it for $0.99. I doubt it would have sold that many copies in a pre-iTunes industry.

    Bedtime Stories doesn't belong in the same sentence as those other albums.

    You mean this Tina Turner outfit? If so, I agree. The greats never go out of style.


    As someone who grew up in the 1980s, I can honestly say Madonna wasn't particularly cool. Hugely popular, yes. The girls loved her and the dancing and the fashion and her attitude. I'm sure there were straight men who enjoyed her music, but they were few and far between. I never knew any or at least no one who would admit to listening to her music. She was a bit of a guilty pleasure. Michael Jackson and Prince were far cooler. I grew up listening to them and other singers like Tina, Chaka Khan, Whitney, Patti LaBelle, Cher and Aretha. Madonna certainly defines the 1980s, that's a given.

    Very true.

    I see a lot of Tina Turner in Beyonce.
