+1 We will never come to a consensus nor will we win another debate on "Pop" music...although, we were being asked for our opinions on popular music. cool

Pop music - or any kind of music - either you like it or you don't. The following song was recently the #1 song physical single seller in the UK for a couple of weeks. Is that enough for it to be a pop song? Or for it to translate to a slew of radio plays there, or anywhere else? Being an indie band I'll bet the latter is a no.

But couldn't it? Shouldn't it?

"Wouldnt it?
Shouldnt it ?"
Heck, buddy, we got a great pop tune there already dont we ?
cool
Mary Lillion got a hard drum crack [great production, drawing onna a lotta stuff beyond the obvious w00t ] but I still gotta give the ranking here to Big Money's fingers !!

That's a cat !

I'm showing my age here. My opinion, but I think pop music for the most part (there have been exceptions of course) hasn't been very impressive since the 70s. Once we got into the 80s it really started to become formulized and it has lost much of it's heart and soul. That being said, much of pop music in the 50s and early 60s was very formulized also. Once the late 60s and 70s arrived pop and rock blossomed together to create in my opinion the greatest decade of popular music ever. Did I mention that this was just my opinion? I don't want to offend anybody.

If you're referring to the decade from , say, '67-'77, it doesn't offend ME, I might even say I agree.

Of course, there's always a bit of "bleeding" from one decade to another. Or, a "cusp" if you will.... wink
