Are they right? I don't really listen to the radio that often, but I do admit that the last time I did, I thought along the same lines. There was a hell of a lot of EDM clogging up my speakers,I tells ya.
However, I'm not entirely sure if this is a new phenomenon. I distinctly remember periods in the past- when I did listen to the radio- that it seemed to be dominated by boy bands (Backstreet Boys/Take That/ Boyzone), then girl groups (Spice Girls/ All Saints/ Destiny's Child) and then rap music (Ja Rule, Eminem, Dr Dre). Heck, there were even times when our Divas appeared to be ruling the waves: first in the earlier 90's with Whitney/Mariah/Celine, and then again at the close of that decade with Britney/Christina/Pink.
Surely, to someone or another, it sounded like the music on the radio during those periods was all alike? Or is Missy right, and this era of music is actually more "samey" than ever before? I honestly don't listen to enough radio to decide either way , but the current Billboard Top Ten radio songs [See below] doesn't seem to agree with her opinion. In fact the top ten appears to be upliftingly varied!
