Bonnie Tyler. I love 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart' and 'Holding Out For A Hero' but only when other people sing them (fairy god mother from Shrek ftw) because her voice is so unpleasant to listen to.

Let's start with Ed Sheeran. What did he get an MBE for? Services to destroying music?

I totally get why Ed Sheeran's getting an MBE (like him or not he is the 2nd biggest British musician at the moment behind Adele) but what did Emeli Sandé do to deserve one?

I totally forgot about Taylor Swift, I would definitely add her to the list. Ed Sheeran is quite overrated as well I agree.

If sales are a reason for getting an MBE, where are the one's for the Spice Girls? or One Direction?? or Calvin Harris???

I don't usually label artists as overrated, although sometimes someone's vocals or production can sound very similar to another artist's, yet only one of them gets all the success? sleep.gif Oh and when an artist is popular but they release a bunch of songs which sound basically the same, or sound just like a song that has done a lot less well commercially.

Ed Sheeran is the now perfect evolution of bland but just interesting enough adult contemporary that record companies have been salivating over the thought of for years because who could dislike that? I dislike that sort of thing.

At the beginning of his career he sounded like a pretty by-the-numbers singer-songwriter with a few heartfelt lyrics and the occasional bit of fun, and that's where he should have stayed.

Also: Adele. I have a great dislike for 'soulful' dreary pap.

Bieber's voice still sends shivers down my spine, Drake hasn't made anything worth the time for years now and the influence they have in making the charts produce minor key dull RnB-lite crap is reaching tipping point.

I mean, the big name I actually like are The Chainsmokers and they're riddled with the same problems, just packaged up with a sound that was fresh with Roses but is quickly becoming less and less enjoyable as they refuse to change and start to make me turn against Coldplay.

Really not a fan of Harry Styles' solo stuff imo, it's an unpopular opinion but the whole 'timeless and retro' feel to his songs just seem too forced for my liking. Sign Of The Times was only decent at best.

(also Charlie Puth isn't my cup of tea these days - his songs wear off on me after a matter of days, and Attention is unbearable now for me)
