It’s official, guys. Pop music just isn’t happy anymore.

Gone are the days of bopping to Reach by S Club 7, and perfecting dance routines as Peter Andre sang about a Mysterious Girl, it seems sadness is what kills it in the charts right now.

Yep, according to a new study, we would rather spend our time crying with Adele than singing about Barbie Girl.
