Over this whole decade, starting from 2010 and ending in 2019, the songs that we have listened to have changed drastically from flashy, energetic pop to reserved, depressing songs you listen to by yourself with your airpods and LED lights on the blue setting.
In 2010, the number one song for the year was TikTok by Ke$ha. This is the song that has the catchy chorus of “Don’t stop/ make it pop. DJ, blow my speakers up/ tonight, I’m-a fight, till we see the sunlight/ Tick-tock on the clock but the party don’t stop, no.”
2011’s number-one hit song had the chorus of “We could have had it all (you’re gonna wish you never had met me). Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep). You had my heart inside of your hand (you’re gonna wish you never had met me). And you played it to the beat (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep).” This song is called Rolling In The Deep by Adele.
2012’s song was from the artist Gotye Featuring Kimbra and they sang Somebody That I Used To Know.
2013 starts off with Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Wanz.
In 2014, Pharrell Williams sings the song, Happy. This chorus, “(Because I’m happy) Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof. (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth. (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you know what happiness is to you. (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do” caught many people’s attention making it a very popular song.
2015 has the song Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. This song has the very catchy chorus of “I’m too hot (hot dang). Called a police and a fireman I’m too hot (hot dang). Make a dragon wanna retire man. I’m too hot (hot dang). Say my name you know who I am I’m too hot (hot dang). Am I bad ’bout that money, break it down.”
2016’s song was Love Yourself by Justin Bieber.
2017 has a number one hit song of Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran.
Drake sings God’s Plan for 2018. The chorus for his song is all about love for everyone and it states “She say, ‘Do you love me?’ I tell her, ‘Only partly.’ I only love my bed and my momma, I’m sorry. Fifty Dub, I even got it tatted on me. 81, they’ll bring the crashers to the party. And you know me. Turn the O2 into the O3, dog. Without 40, Oli’, there’d would be no me. Imagine if I never met the broskies. God’s plan, God’s plan.”
And for the last year of the decade, 2019 had a number one hit song of Old Town Road sung by Lil Nas X Featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. This song was very catchy because of the chorus that repeats itself a ton which is “Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road, I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more. I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road, I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more.”
