Current trends

So I’ve noticed a few trends. Music is either a mix of different genres or its nostalgic.  A lot is from the 60s but I hear some of just about every decade in music now days.  Amy Winehouse’s rehab, Sean Kingston’s Beautiful girls, and Duffy’s Mercy are examples of 60s sound.

Then there are groups like Gym Class Heroes that sample older songs with their song Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast in America came from Supertramp’s (Weird group name huh?) Breakfast in America. Of course there’s Nelly Furtado Maneater that is I guess a dance version of Hall and Oats’ maneater.

And of course there’s “eclecticism” which is a combination of genres and sounds.  Madonna who I think notices trends very very well (which is a reason why she is still popular after all of this time) has a bunch of songs like beat goes on with Kanye West and Four Minutes with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Rihanna and Maroon 5 have gotten this too with If I never see your face again

What do you think of these trends?
