The Millennial Whoop

When pop songs all started sounding the same to me, I though it was just because I was getting old. But according to musician Patrick Metzger, it may be because there’s an oft-repeated vocal phrase that turns up in more and more songs in the last few years. He calls it “the Millennial Whoop,” although it’s not exactly new. However, it is used in more recent songs than you realize. How many? Maybe all of them. There’s a long list of examples at Metzger’s blog. (via Tastefully Offensive)
