Quite. Yes, pop is fine. When you start singing the praises of Hadouken though, I really do start to worry.

Personally I'm getting tired of pop. Every other band nowadays is some pop rock scene fashion crap calling itself hardcore or screamo or whatever. All the lame pop rock like Green Day that exploded when I was in high school didn't really warm me up to pop either. But of course all music is part pop to some extent except for the most noisiest of noise.

I don't get why you are saying The Kinks are pop. I always considered them early rock as in the transition from early Rock N Roll pop to bluesy, harder rock.

I think you have a very warped view of what pop is... or maybe a very standard, non-thinking/unedutated view of what pop is. Pop isn't just something that's popular at the time, a trend. There's a theory that pop music is a song that is written within a certain confined structure, whether mainstream, a trend, or not.

I guess you were too excited to call someone uneducated to have noticed that last sentence of my first paragraph. I'm using pop in the sense on the reliance of hooks. It's just happenstance that generally the more a song uses hooks, the more it appeals to a larger audience. I never said anything about pop being a trend.

BUT I'M UNEDUCATED!

Yeah, I'm heaps excited to call someone uneducated. It's made my day to think that you don't understand what pop is. I couldn't have enjoyed myself more if I were on drugs.

Yet that last sentence doesn't change my post.

Funny, because I would think that saying that the pop hook pervades pretty much all styles of music (as in being an element of general songwriting) would counter the idea that pop is just what is trendy or mainstream which you accuse me of thinking. Maybe you could explain the irrelevance of the statement for this poor, common half-wit?

It's not about hooks, it's about song structure.

Anyway. As the Beatles (pop) said: Let it be.

Pookie = wrong. But come across as a nice enough chap generally.

T&B - I'm not a contrarian in the slightest. I'm sorry I have better taste than you, really I am.

Cardinal Rob - Let's have kids. As mentioned elsewhere, that Stars are Blind was a single so good that no-one should've made it, and yet it was made by celebrity-culture's most risible figure. 'Mazin'.

Stars are Blind is definitely one of those songs that just emerges almost (it does sound a BIT like Blondie's The Tide is High I suppose) out of nowhere: a sparkling example of what pop CAN be. A masterpiece.

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a masterpiece and I like that song as testified by the very first thread that was dedicated to it on this very forum.
As far as pop is concerned, there is very little of it that is memorable in this time and age, but I think certain people pretend that it's happening and blah blah blah, it just somehow makes them feel safe, but said safety is unclear as to why should be felt in the first place. Pop's great when it has hooks, very little of wich i can hear in most songs that come out at the moment.
