Some complain that pop songs have become too generic; they use the same chords, have a similar sound and feature similar styles. Perhaps they are right, because a YouTube user was able to take 9 of this season’s radio hits and mash them up into one coherent song. The Pop Mash-Up video may not be the next big song on repeat, but it does sound similar to what is playing on the biggest radio stations.

Since the generic pop song sound has become all too easy to recreate, the Pop Mash-Up has hit it big on YouTube and shown a different side of the music industry and what we’re listening to. Whether this will have any effect on the music industry or what people are listening to is still undecided.
