The song to represent this decade is 'Uptown Funk' by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
The song is good, the recording is good, the mastering is good, if a little loud, at LUFS -11.8.
There are a few clipped samples, but not bad in this day and age.
I decided to do something completely different and record the song myself in my studio with midi.
I match the LUFS number of -11.8, but keep my clipped samples at 0 with -1.0 dB true peak level.
I play a little of my version of the song, and then the same section of the real one. A fun exercise.
I hope that you have learned something on this quick tour of recorded music in the United States in the past 80 years.
There is a lot more where this came from, but this gives you a start.
Not sure what we will do next, but it should be interesting.
