  • 1.  David Hatch and Stephen Millward define pop music as "a body of music which is distinguishable from popular, jazz, and folk music". According to Pete Seeger, pop music is "professional music which draws upon both folk music and fine arts music".[Although pop music is often seen as oriented towards the singles charts 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.
  • 2.  the term ‘pop’ was first recorded as being used in 1926 – because this genre of music had a popular feel.  Hatch and Millward indicate that many events in the history of recording in the 1920s can be seen as the birth of the modern pop music industry, including in country, blues and hillbilly music.
  • 3.  Michael Jackson is influential in the pop industry.  Pop music has been dominated by the American and (from the mid-1960s) British music industries, whose influence has made pop music something of an international monoculture, but most regions and countries have their own form of pop music, sometimes producing local versions of wider trends, and lending them local characteristics. Some of these trends (for example Europop) have had a significant impact of the development of the genre.
  • 4.  Aim of appealing to general audiences – rather than appealing to particular sub-culture or ideology.  an emphasis on craftsmanship rather than formal "artistic" qualities  an emphasis on recording, production, and technology, over live performance  tendency to reflect existing trends rather than progressive developments  much pop music is intended to encourage dancing, or it uses dance-oriented beats or rhythms The main medium of pop is the song. Length of song – often 2.30 – 4 minutes in length. With a consistent and noticeable rhythmic element, mainstream sound with a simple structure. The beat and the melodies tend to be simple, with limited harmonic accompaniment. The lyrics of modern pop songs typically focus on simple themes – often love and romantic relationships – although there are notable exceptions.
  • 5.  Some critics. Social commentators and music industry insiders.  Give indication that modern pop is declining – which has been recognised in warning sales, public opinion polls, time studies and declining concert attendance.  research shows that pop songs are becoming more similar—that is they are tending to sound the same— and "that the number of chords and different melodies has gone down", as musicians have become less adventuresome in their song writing.
