POP CHART INFOGRAPHIC
The thematic content of top ten singles has, thus far, been a sadly-neglected area of academic research. No longer: in March 2011 we delved into the subject and – with the help of the professorial faculty at www.songmeanings.net – ascertained the key components of a chart-storming track. Aspiring lyricists take note: people aren’t making so many songs about money any more.
