Music of 2021


Over the years there have been a series of different styles of music. Starting off with a first century A.D Greek tune, known as the “Seikilos Epitaph.” Leading up to today’s styles known as pop, jazz, country, rock, alternative, electronic, rap, and much more. In today’s hits there are all kinds of different styles to choose from.


Songs have changed from 1920s-2021 in such that in the 1920s some of their song solos use improvisation. In modern days this proud tradition kind of vanished. We still do in fact use instruments that they used in the 1920s like the guitar. We may not use it as much as they used to because we now have all this technology, which is pretty cool. 


Today’s popular songs have a bunch of different styles, but most importantly, different meanings to each song, which makes them unique. Such as:

  •  Martin Garrix – Pressure (Feat. Tove Lo). This is a great song to dance to with friends. Definitely a song to dance to at a party.
  •  Harry Styles – Watermelon Sugar. A good song to dance to with friends and sing too, by yourself or with friends.
  • Olivia Rodrigo – Driver’s License. If you are just looking for a good song to sing your heart out, this is the song for you.  
  • Lo Vas A Olvidar – Billie Eilish, ROSALIA. A great way to diversify your playlist…this song is written and performed in the Spanish language. 


Today’s popular albums on the other hand, have all kinds of different songs in the series of albums. Such as:

  • Ghetts – Conflict Of Interest. 
  • Tribulation – Where The Gloom Becomes Sound.
  • Pualine Anna Strom – Angel Tears in Sunlight.
  • Cassandra Jenkins – An Overview On Phenomenal Nature. 


All types of music are great ways to de-stress and escape the world and are also fun to jam to with friends. To conclude this article, popular songs these days are much different than what they used to be.
