A few years ago I wondered if pop music lyrics have grown less interesting since maybe the 1980s, so I scraped lyrics for all the top 40 hits and read them all.

I pulled the results that especially struck me and posted one a day to .

From the experience, broadly speaking, I found that pop lyrics were most interesting circa 1960-90. Post `00 they really shifted to "Baby I love you baby" territory.
