No, absolutely not. Everything today is so commercial, and is written for the money. The musicians that you listed were actually talented, and weren't completely reliant on the record company to mold them into what they need to be to sell millions of records. Also, from what you listed, Piano Man, Thriller, Another Brick in the Wall, everyone knows those songs. Why? Because they're timeless classics that are well constructed, original masterpieces. Now, it's almost like a formula, where they write some cheesy pop song about some kid trying to get a girl, say "Baby Baby Baby" a bunch of times, auto tune the heck out of it, then clog the radio with it for weeks. People are trained to like what's on the radio, regardless of what it is, because if it's on the radio, it must be amazing, and that's what everyone else is listening to, and god forbid someone dare try to be different. I swear, when I walk down my school hallway, it's like everyone walked out of a human factory, brainwashed, and incapable to exercise any sort of creative thought, and therefore resort to the atrocious, pathetic excuse for noise that the radio calls a masterpiece.
