Genre: Pop

Postby ashokrai » Sat Nov 06, 2010 6:29 am

Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is usually understood to be commercially recorded music, often oriented towards a youth market, usually consisting of relatively short, simple love songs utilizing technological innovations to produce new variations on existing themes.

Although pop music is often seen as oriented towards the singles charts, as a genre it is not the sum of all chart music, which has always contained songs from a variety of sources, including classical, jazz, rock, and novelty songs, while pop music as a genre is usually seen as existing and developing separately. Thus "pop music" may be used to describe a distinct genre, aimed at a youth market, often characterized as a softer alternative to rock and roll.

Music mostly appeal to young people; bland watered-down version of rock'n'roll rhythm and harmony, more emphasis on romantic love. It called Pop music.

For some reason I don't like pop music at all. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I prefer jazz.
