70s Hits Offer a Wider Range Than Today’s Chart Toppers

When you look at a list of Billboard’s Top 100 these days, it usually features a bunch of pop hits that sound very much alike. The same names, the same beats, the same everything; it’s like an ice cream shop with a few smatterings of toppings and one flavor. That’s not an ice cream shop that I would frequent, unless it was my favorite flavor!

Sure, you’ll have an occasional variation like Adele, but for the most part, it’s same old same old—and if you work in retail where these songs are played on a loop, you are probably violently sick of them all (except when November rolls around and all you hear are Christmas carols, of course).
