as far as current hits, I like "Turn Down For What."   :)

I liked it for the pure stupidity of Lil Jon  :D

Lorde I'm loving the more I listen to it. She has a really bright future ahead of her.

I agree about Lorde- I already liked Royals and then I heard Team and it was even better. She's great.

Most of the "currently popular" songs I like are from last year. :D Like Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. And Pompeii by Bastille. And Ain't It Fun by Paramore. I still hear them on the radio quite often so I guess it counts. I can't remember anything from this year that I really enjoy, but I know there has to be some.

EDIT- I forgot to add Counting Stars by Onerepublic... One of the best songs to become popular recently in my opinion. And Best Day of My Life by whoever does it... I love that song!

I've always loved Lil' Jon for the stupidity factor. The guy can't write songs, rap or produce for ____, but damn, are his songs fun to listen to.   :D

...and yeah, Lorde's album is awesome. It's been a loooooooooong time since I've heard anyone worthy of a Kate Bush comparison, but she just might be.

Hi EC - Best Day of My Life is by American Authors.  I heard it live the same night I heard Counting Starts by One Republic.  PM me if you want to watch the videos on Instagram.  I know I put Counting Stars there but I can upload Best Day of My Life too

Also, Sam Smith has a hell of a voice. Only interesting part of MTV's Video Music Awards. (I didn't watch the actual show live, it was too painful).

Got the royal blood album today, it is an absolute belter.

Anybody here who likes rock music, check this album out. You won't regret it.

Some chart topping artists I enjoy are
-Owl City
-Taylor Swift (on a downhill slope after the new single though, sounds more generic pop)
-Macklemore
-OneRepublic
-Paramore
-Lorde
I really like the old Taylor Swift and I'm not ashamed to say that I've got a couple of her cd's, but the fact that she's gone completely pop now it's a huge letdown... Apart from her I hate pretty much everything from the current popular music, even though I like something from Lorde and Katy Perry. I hate almost everything even from the current "popular" (if we can say such a thing) rock music.

I like Lorde and Lana Del Rey, though I have to admit that I'm kind of falling out of Lana's music, especially with the recent album. Plus she just kind of gets on my nerves sometimes. But Lorde is fantastic.

^They played here when we were out of town. I've heard very good things about them. The local rock/indie stations play them regularly.

I just think they are kind of different - melodic but rough if that makes any sense?!?

I'm trying not to like that stupid "All about that Bass" song, but it's really fun.

I also like Banks, but she's not really big (yet).
