All About Pop!

Unlike popular music, which just means music, which is wide-spread, pop music in the narrower sense aims at a large audience, rather than a particular niche. Production quality is generally more important than live performances, where also playback may be used. Pop music very often has a focus on being danceable.

"The story of pop music is largely the story of the intertwining pop culture of the United States and the United Kingdom in the postwar era."

Bob Stanley

Songs are generally short, mostly between two and a half and three and a half minutes in length, and have a simple, traditional structure. Rhythms, melodies, and chord progressions tend to be simple. The lyrics very often include love and romantic relationships.
