The most inluential pop music guru you’ve probably never heard of


POP quiz: Who has been the most influential and powerful person in pop music over the last 20 years? Britney Spears? Madonna? Michael Jackson? Beyonce? Simon Cowell? Sure, these people have all been extraordinarily successful, but what if we told you that there’s one man whose musical accomplishments easily trumps all of these artists? And what if we told you that most people have probably never even heard of this person and definitely wouldn’t recognize him walking down the street? Sounds impossible right? Well, if at any point in the last 20 years you’ve heard a song from The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, N’Sync, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Ace of Base, Katy Perry, Celine Dion, Bon Jovi, Adam Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Pink, Justin Bieber… then you’ve unwittingly been subject to the creations of a Swedish born musical genius who goes by the name of Max Martin. Believe it or not, over the past 15-20 years Max Martin has been the brains, ears and talent behind virtually every hit pop song that has been released to the screaming masses. He’s personally responsible for churning out more Billboard singles than Michael Jackson and Madonna COMBINED. And since he is essentially unrecognizable to the average person, that might make him the most famous, non-famous person on the planet.

  1. ….and just ‘cos it’s Sunday, here’s one for Bubba:-

    “Some good news for all us off-grid consumers, Sufficient electric power to carry the average Aussie household -over night or for several rainy days.

    Renewable energy sources are great, but they all rely on something quite uncertain. Unfortunately, the wind and the sun don’t always respond to our prayers. A means of storing electrical energy close to the source could be the solution. Flow batteries have been drawing the attention of the engineering community because the power-conversion unit and the storage tank are separated (unlike the standard solid-electrode battery configuration). This means that the chemical storage tank could be as large as needed. But until now, flow batteries relied on expensive commodities such as vanadium and platinum.

    Last week, Harvard scientists demonstrated a new type of metal-free flow battery based on a chemical fluid consisting of organic molecules called quinones dissolved in water. These molecules are pretty similar to those that store energy in living beings. They’re naturally abundant and inexpensive, so they could be a cost-effective approach to storing massive amounts of energy. In addition, the tanks can be sized according to the application.” See;


  2. I’m surprised I wasn’t more aware of this guy! Kind of like back in the MoTown days where essentially one group of musicians were responsible for nearly all of the hits!


  3. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to
    be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest

    article. I desire to read more things about
