Is anybody else as amazed by this guy as I am?
For those of you who don't know, Max Martin is a Swedish songwriter who has had 54 of his songs reach the top 10 since 97. How have you not heard of him? Because he doesn't sing his own songs: Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, The Veronicas, Pink, Usher, Avril Lavigne, Jessie J, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and many others do. Below are the 22 number one hits he has wrote in order.

|What a guy|
|I LITERALLY GO ON THIS RANT ALL THE TIME. Holy shit, I'm actually pumped to see someone else appreciate this guy. I know he likes to stay out of the limelight, but looking back it's gonna seem actually unbelievable that some dad-aged Swedish dude had a hand in such a staggering amount of hits - nay, megahits - from the late 90's on. Kudos on this list.|
|@Sublime glad I'm not alone, I rant about this pretty frequently too. It's just mind blowing how he just the US radio stations, its like he wrote every other song that comes on the radio. I hope that one day he releases all of the original demos for all his hits (I realize this will probably never happen)|
|props to him for some amazing success but it's been like, seven or eight years since I liked a song and saw him credited on it|
|Try Burt Bacharach if you want a hit machine that won't give you a headache. |
|he can be rather hit and miss on the whole, tbh some of his early productions have aged horrendously and his hooks can err on the side of obnoxious quite easily.|
like, "Can't Feel My Face" and "Shake it Off" are pleasant tunes but they're ready for the trash heap after about 10 listens.
|Lol @ sublimefan. Dude hasn't grown up an ounce since he got here a while back. |
|These are all godawful songs except Teenage Dream|
|yah Teenage Dream is still GOAT |
|so no chord. got it.|
|This would be impressive if 2/3 of these songs weren't terrible.|
|Surprised by someone could say this isn't impressive, I would never go out of my way to listen to basically any of these songs, but that is besides the fact. You all know all of these songs and one man created them while remaining unknown, that's extremely impressive|
|A god among men|
|Wow, he makes songs that radio stations pick up!|
Good job, guy!
