It's a topic that I often think about and I'm excited of your answers: It's a subjective view but in my opinion popmusic is getting worse every year. I'm coming from Germany and when I'm listening to the "normal radio" 95% of the actual music is just rubbish in my eyes, boring, full of simple melodies and song-texts. I don't see anything that I would call creativity or that even touches my mind. And as a rock- and guitar-fan I really miss the guitar. When I listen to songs from the 80's I always think that they are much better than the music from today. It's a general impression I get, of course there might be some exceptions but now I want to know from you if you've got the same impression of the "pop-music" in your country or if I'm the only one who is nearly ashamed of the music-culture in his country...
