    Modern pop is totally overprocessed and vapid. But there is a lot of new stuff that is really good. You just have to keep your ears open and look beyond the stuff that has been heavily marketed.

    Now this is someone that is unafraid to like what they like.

    In the same spirit, I'll offer that I think "Mmmbop" is one of the most brilliant pop songs ever.

    Did "pop music" as a genre exist before the time of this study? I mean there was music that was popular, but there wasn't an industry aiming to "make pop music" before then, was there?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_music
    Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is a genre of popular music which originated in its modern form in the 1950s, deriving from rock and roll.[1] The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is popular (and can include any style), whilst the latter is a specific genre containing qualities of mass appeal.[1]
    Mass production can often lead to poorer quality. Perhaps this is what happened with "pop music".

    With that said, I have liked many songs that I've heard over the years, and I like many songs created before 1955 also.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    ygolo asked a exellent question.

    And since the study involves music that predates the "POP" genre they are actually taking about music that has topped the billboard lists since the 50s and so on.

    That includes wierd ones like the following

    "It was released in 1963 and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100."
    wiki



    "Oh Yeah" is a single released in 1985 by the Swiss band Yello and featured in their album Stella. It reached No. 51 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1987.[1]


    If you want complexity i suggest something like this.

    I just realized this irony:

    You know you're in trouble when a free webcomic's Crowning Music of Awesome is better than stuff that people demand you pay them for and sue you over it if you don't.
