Back off Drake!! it's time to let some other Canuck talent have a crack at topping the Billboard Hot
100. Ya know, something preferably with real guitars, drums and legit vocal talent!! Oh, sorry, should have probably kept that last part limited to an interior monologue! Regardless of any repeated displeasure and sarcasm on my part, it really is possible to trace the sad decline of mainstream/
popular Canadian music through this chart. Some Guy Lombardo and Percy Faith would really
soothe this particular pilgrim's over-burdened soul at this very moment. Off to Youtube and beyond...

Let me sum up what bsmt said, “get off my lawn!”

Music changes. It has and always will. Good on Drake for his achievements.

So proud that a Canadian is having unprecedented levels of success in hip hop music like Drake is.

I never thought I'd see the day.

Quite the story behind Sheriff's - When I'm with You. Coincidentally, that's the last song I know from the list. Everything after that, I'm clueless on.

Posted this before: When most of the regular commenters on here were younger the various charts were accommodating to assorted genres and styles of music. This is no longer true. Sure, music changes, and while I wouldn't expect most of today younglings to give a damn 'bout the artists/bands I hold most sacred, pretty hard to get excited about the current crop of pop stars. Hear(!) today, gone later this afternoon!!The same will probably hold true for the golden boy of the moment, Drake. And the fact that he's from the Six and is a proud proponent for the city doesn't take away from the largely generic nature of his sound. Aural beauty is definitely in the ears of the beholder, but all Ihear is a hell of a lot of Auto-Tune, excessive Pro-Tools manipulation and far too many guests/co-
signs. Still waiting in vain for someone to release a track where the artist or group credit simply goes
to Featuring....and like at least 10-12 names appear, which if you bother to read the liner notes
(does anyone other than me even do this anymore?!?), is the average number of writers on most
Pop/Hip Hop tracks. It's like reading the masthead of a law firm!!!

Sorry, the above comment was from me. Accidentally pushed "POST COMMENT" before I could type
in my alias. Always good to take pseudonymous credit for 'one's work', especially if it might
provoke comments of dissent in the ones and the twos!

Seriously, bsmt. You need to stop being a stereotype. People have been saying, “music today sucks!” As long as music has been around.

Remember this quote (and it is eerily similar to yours) by the Boston Globe on Sept 13, 1964

“The Beatles are not merely awful; I would consider it sacrilegious to say anything less than that they are god awful. They are so unbelievably horribly, so appalling unmusical, so dogmatically insensitive to the magic of art that the quality as crowned heads of anti-music, even as the imposter popes went down in history as ‘anti-popes’” other words....get off my lawn!

Music changes. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t t make it generic.

All personal musical taste aside, my use of the term GENERIC had more to do with the over-processed
sound of most modern pop music. "Mutt" Lange at his most musically excessive couldn't hold a candle to the manufacturers of much of today's seemingly Ikea-manufactured po(o)p! Glad to know
that you have the backs of the younger generation. I'm sure that the grateful likes of Drake, Ed Sheeran and Cardi B. have already added you to their already over-stuffed Christmas card lists!!!

September 12, 2018 @ 3:02 PM


I actually don’t care for Drake that much. And I’m not even sure I know a Cardi B song. As for Ed Sheeran, I don’t care for him either. Give me a Tom Waits album and I’m happy forever. I just don’t lament or decry “today’s music”. Some of it I like and some of it I don’t. I’m not their target audience.

September 12, 2018 @ 5:50 PM


I agree with your Tom Waits choice and I also agree that I'm also not in the target audience. My main gripe is that while I know there are a plethora of ways to enjoy all the music that I personally like,
the near commercial extinction of straight-ahead pop/rock music is a very disturbing trend to

Out of the last 15 on the list, only 1-2 are not low risk affairs. Drake especially is the modern version of easy listening, the music doesn't engage me at all. The Weeknd pulls the average up out of this bunch.

How didn't Steal My Sunshine make it to No. 1?
