Male Rock/Pop Singers

#1
I've noticed that a good majority of the male rock and pop singers out there are tenors. It seems to be a trend that started decades ago and has continued today.

Do you think that being a tenor actually gives a singer an edge as far as pop/rock is concerned in today's music industry? Why or why not?

I think each artist is unique with whichever pitch they are, its what makes music great. I don't think either one has an advantage over the other.

I still wonder why so many male pop singers are tenors. You rarely see a bass singer as the lead singer on a pop hit single these days. I'm struggling to find examples.

Of course in genres such as country, it almost seems to be the other way around.

I think the tenors just have a voice better suited for the pop music industry, it would be hard to imagine a bass singing Amnesia or something. Tongue

A lot of pop songs nowadays I consider just the record label forcing a sound that makes more money, making many styles just sound outdated and bland. An example (it's not pop I know, but still) is a hip-hop producer by the name of DJ Mustard. Many of the hip-hop songs he has produced have incredibly similar beats. For example, if you can stand it, listen to Fergie's "LA Love (La La)" and Jeremih's "Don't Tell 'Em" and see how the beat is so similar.

I guess it could be pop though, since many top 40 songs are rap songs nowadays.

Pop and Rap. So sad since most of them are talent-less without auto tune, and there is rarely a song with meaning behind the lyrics, just another mainstream "artist" letting out air.  :/

And it's at least 70% of the time about love or something of that sort. I hate that. Write about something different. Like, seriously. Make it interesting. But nooooo, you have to write about how you know this lady you've been dating for a whole 2 1/2 weeks is "the one" for you.
