    You're an exception, most people listen to more male stuff
    Most people aren't daft enough to think their own circle of friends is reflective of worldwide trends.

    Spotify is a biased list - I'm sure you know that a number of artists boycott it.

    YouTube is a bit more balanced (although there's an argument that the demographics of people using YouTube to listen to music isn't representative)

    Are you looking at these tables that you post? 5/10 of the top 10 videos are female Top 20 (excluding the wheels on the bus) is majority female.

    There's still nothing to evidence "most people definitely listen to more male stuff".

    Madonna, Mariah Carey , Celine Dion , Whitney Houston are up there in the list of best selling artists of all time. No sex is better than the other we each have differences but neither would exist without the other so equal respect should be given

    Two artists prove nothing.

    Yes but in most people's taste, men produce the best music.
    this is why I posted the Adele link. Your not saying a larger number of top musicians are male, you are saying males produce 'the best' music & that can't be true if Adele is currently number one by your own criteria.

    It's all pretty average to be fair, though I have always loved 9 to 5.

    Where have you got that from? Take out the 2 non music ones and it's 11-9 in favour of males (lead artist only). Include featured artists and it's 20-12. Are you looking at these tables that I post?

    I never said definitely. To be 100% sure, you'd have to do some kind of comprehensive study. But when the most listened to/bought in every format are male, that's a pretty good indicator.

    I'm saying men produce more of the best music. Obviously I'm not saying 100% of the best music is by men.

    Most of the best selling artists are male, by a comfortable margin.

    Laura Marling is brilliant. Utterly bonkers, but brilliant.

    Uh, because mostly men focus on lyrics more than having a sex appeal? I doubt there is a clear cut answer to that, and "best" music is subjective.
    Just cuz a song is popular and making money =/= "good" music.
    There are ton of popular songs out there that are trash in my opinion. I think sometimes the music industry just gives what the viewers want to hear, I guess. It all depends on that individual's taste and preference.

    Ya might be a hardcore fan of Adele or some popular male/female singer while the other person may not.
    Most of my "favorite" songs are made by male artists. About 80%.
    Maybe because most male artists just take chances than females do and just happen to fall in your genre you like the most?. Who knows. Maybe the music industry is sexist!
