Pop.

I had a mini-debate with Mike on the weekend about pop music. I’d like to provide a few examples of my side of the argument, and maybe Mike can further enlighten us as to his side.

This is pop.

This is pop.

This is pop.

This is sublime, glorious pop.

And this is boooooooooring.

  2. I can see how the last one wouldnt be considered pop, but I dont think it should be called boring. Im not a Tweedy/Wilco follower at all but the slight melancholia and softly strummed guitar is pretty common gives some brightness and pep. Plus we are talking different generations here so perceptions of pop will be different…. but it seems awfully downtempo to qualify, historically speaking.
