Taylor swift has been ousted out of the #1 spot by a song that seemed to come from the 80’s. Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk has become Billboard’s #1 in the Hot 100 chart. The song is unlike any other song from the decade. It has elements of a good 80’s song but has some contemporary elements to it as well.
The scale used for the song is very basic and only two chords are needed to play the entire track. An interview with a professor on popular music , Christopher Cowdray, reveals some of the reasons why the song is so catchy.
