Turkey Super_StaRR 
for giving us the greatest music producer of all-time; "Karl Martin Sandberg born 26 February 1971), known professionally as Max Martin, is a Swedish record producer, songwriter, and singer. He rose to prominence in the second half of the 1990s after making a string of major hits such as Britney Spears's "...Baby One More Time" (1998), The Backstreet Boys's "I Want It That Way" (1999) and NSYNC's "It's Gonna Be Me" (2000). Martin has written or co-written 22 Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits, most of which he has also produced or co-produced, including Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" (2008), Maroon 5's "One More Night" (2012), Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" (2014), and The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" (2015). Martin is the songwriter with the third-most number-one singles on the chart, behind only Paul McCartney (32) and John Lennon (26). In addition, he has had the second most Hot 100 number-one singles as a producer, 22, behind George Martin, who had achieved 23 by the time of his death. In early 2013, his single sales were tallied by The Hollywood Reporter to be at over 135 million.[5] According to Variety, his net worth was approximately $260 million in 2017. The previous year he achieved approximately an income of $54 million and a profit of $19 million for his services. Martin has won the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year award a record eleven times.

Shouldn't make statement saying greatest of all time when you've never known all of them or atleast all top ones.
2019-07-16 10:32
i know all the top ones and you should watch these videos; to learn his math formula when he makes a typical hit songs
2019-07-16 10:42
you forgot to use a letter s when you wrote "shit songs"
2019-07-16 10:50
lmao somebody made a song using fibonacci series. Should I say he is greatest musician of all time or what. You might be knowing how fibonacci series corresponds to golden ratio.

Avicii is the greatest music producer of all-time
2019-07-16 10:47
Sadly he is no longer with us.
2019-07-16 11:47
2019-07-16 12:23
have taste Sweden has a lot of good electronic musicians, but avicii was awful, it's unbearable to listen if have at least the rudiments of taste
2019-07-16 12:46
just compare this great song with his lowbrow "music"
2019-07-16 12:50
lol no but i can say easily that he was a good dj F
2019-07-17 07:53
lol no. fuck sweden for giving us decades of trash pop songs that all sound exactly the same. you havent changed the formula since abba. swedish pop mafia is real.
2019-07-16 10:50
tbf, abba is really good tho
2019-07-16 10:59
I hope you mean Gabba music :)
2019-07-16 10:59
grüzi i dont actually
2019-07-16 11:01
what do you mean about sounds exactly same, these songs written and produced by same person isn't normal to sounds like generic?
2019-07-16 11:07
if all the songs are made by the same guys with the same formula then they all sound the same
2019-07-16 11:27
What is wrong with you. Don't like pop, then don't listen to it or if you prefer Mylène Farmer then stick to her.
2019-07-16 11:49
i dislike that all the fame and attention goes to people who only look pretty and have producers behind them who know how to use autotune and use the same formula for every song. i would rather live in a world where actually talented musicians get the fame and attention instead of this disney shit.
2019-07-16 11:55
Then for starters you can't dislike ABBA. But sure, some of the music stars are just pretty people that don't really contribute much apart from that only saying that about everything Max has been involved in is really unfair and uninformed.
2019-07-16 12:01
yes abba didnt have autotune, they at least could actually sing. although i still hate their songs. i dont see how its uninformed to say the swedish pop mafia has led to a lot of similar music. the only new things since they are in control is shit like dubstep becoming mainstream and now mumble rap. pop music is kinda dead. nothing changed since i was a kid in the 90s. im a barbie girl in a barbie woooorld. life in plastic, its fantastic. whens the last time you heard a good political protest pop song? wheres the next bob dylan?
2019-07-16 12:05
whens the last time you heard a good political protest pop song? wheres the next bob dylan? In rap genre
2019-07-16 12:17
no rap is dead
2019-07-16 12:48
Bob Dylans music is boring as F... He writes good lyrics, but I can't stand listening to him. As for Barbie Girl if you don't get that it is form of protest, then you need to listen to it again and pay more attention. Or goo listen to Katy Perry and pay attention to her lyrics, like for example her "I kissed a girl" - that tune is thankfully nothing special in our part of the World however elsewhere the notion of a girl kissing a girl and liking it is highly controversial. And that is just one example another one would be "Fireworks" which she and Max also wrote together, you may not like the delivery but you can not claim it is without a message.
2019-07-16 12:21
it is a form of protest but it is in this shitty formula that we still have today. about katy perry, i'll let the key of awesome handle that one:
2019-07-16 12:49
tldr these songs are marketed as protest songs but the artists arent actually protesting anything or anyone. they are only trying to get you to buy crap.
2019-07-16 12:52

2019-07-16 12:34
Wtf are you even talking about ???? Never heard about Swedish metal bands? They are the best you can get!
2019-07-16 12:38
swedish metal is great and metal in general doesnt get any attention these days itls just the swedish pop mafia i have a problem with
2019-07-16 12:53
I think u mean Opeth
2019-07-16 13:57

because he's popular in music industry, not well known outside.
2019-07-16 15:07
Is this one of the first positive threads about Sweden? Np btw
2019-07-16 11:50
Not positive, that guy has made an endless amount of songs which all sound the same.
2019-07-16 15:16

thank you sweden for accepting so many muslims so my country doesnt have to :)
2019-07-16 12:57
was just waiting to see the polish or 2nd world kids bashing on sweden
2019-07-16 13:02
bashing? read again, i thanked them, if you know the political circumstances around EU and immigration policy for refugees, swedes took one for the team really hard, made my country safe. Its shitty, its poor, but its safe :D Unlike france, where i got robbed and where you cannot walk in Paris after 6 pm without a tazer or a gun
2019-07-16 13:15
Paris =/= France that's like me going to New York and complaining I got mugged
2019-07-16 13:44
there are producers who sold much more records!
2019-07-16 13:09
of course there are, but they'll probably never do 22 #1 songs you can check the UK charts
2019-07-16 15:18
Mikael Åkerfeldt top1 Fuck martin, he fucked up the music industry with same sounding songs.

I’m terribly sorry for the fact that we have created a monster of mediocre music. He shits out songs like they were C9 roster changes.
2019-07-16 15:15
what do you mean mediocre, you should be proud of your country..
2019-07-16 15:21
It’s shit dude. Every song is built the exact same way. I’m not going to be proud over something my country has done just because it’s successful.
2019-07-16 15:23
every song is built same way, isn't that normal? written and produced by same person, anyway i respect your opinion of course you can don't like his style or music it's ok.
2019-07-16 15:25
It is normal, and that is a problem. Music shouldn’t be about money, it should be about passion.
