commonly mistaken for being a shortened version of 'popular music', pop music is a term that applies to songs which use a pretty formulaic verse chorus bridge, verse chorus as the standard.. a rock n' roll song that hits it bigtime is still a rock song.. popular country tunes are still country tunes.. hip hop be hip hop. due to mass-corruption on many levels of humanity, pop's name has been spoiled--forever linked to (but not limited to) the latest top40 geared studio manufactured product pusher of the month.
fella #1: "did you watch conan last night?"
duder #2: "nah, too busy watchin'the music video station."
fella #1: "those music video's are nothing more than 3 1/2 minute commercials, played over and over until we know the words, associate that with liking it and buy the album."
duder #2: *singing latest madonna song in his head* "huh? whah? sorry, i wasn't listening."
fella #1: "record companys decide and let the music channels and radio stations know what the next hit single shall be. they can afford to do that sorta thing."
duder #2: "but kelly clarkson totally rocks!"
fella #1: "wrong. she will be gone shortly and forever erased from our memories."
duder #2: "who was on conan?"
fella #1: "broken social scene.. amazing band, proving that the pop music has room for growth, depth, and talent."
duder #2: "you gonna eat that?"
fella #1: "ugh.. take it." *hands over his sandwich*

Music that is usually used in order to make ones ears bleed
"Hey, lets go listen to some pop music, I feel putting myself through hell!"

1. Utter corporate shit that the men in suits push on the public in order to dumb down the populace. It is manufactured to the max by some "songwriters" in Europe who think music can be put together like Lego sets - I could write better lyrics and music than what's on these "songs" when I am STONED. Pop music acts concentrate more on their looks, sexuality and choreographed dance moves. ALL of those teenybopper pop acts suck out the unwashed ass. The fucking Spice Girls started this trend of trash about 10 years ago and the public have been sheep ever since. We need a punk-like rock and roll movement to bring music back to the people.

2. A chart-topping new wave hit for M in late 1979.
1. Quit playing that Britney Spears crap! She can't sing. Here. Play this U2 CD instead. U2 rocks. That Britney Speares CD ain't good for nothing except for use as a frisbee, and then you should fling it in the fucking trash can.

2. ... New York London Paris Munich everybody talk about pop music
talk about pop music, talk about pop music
shimmy shimmy doo-wop pop pop shoo-wop...

something that requires no talent to make as it only uses cheap shitty computer software and some blond bimbo slut or some batty boy preppie faggot male to "sing" the shitty lyrics some cocklord named Bjorn from Armenia wrote.

In fact it shouldnt even be legally defined as music Call it Horrible Talentless Noise

an evil satanic form of music,if u would call it that ,that is simply a ploy by company's to make money, the main method used to brainwash people into buying this crap is by employing good looking people(most likely once homeless) to sing the songs written by the company songwriter preying on teenage girls who somehow believe in their minds that they will one day marry,go out with or have a kinky one nite stand with the artist

absolute useless music that ruins good music like punk and metal and im white and i respect rap music a million times more that rap
cheers ive said my peice
simple plan,backstreet boys(who r now at number 2 i believe thats fuked up)N"SYNC, nelly,britney spears, and n e person involved with idol and finally n e of you speds that r involved in the scam

Pop music is probably the biggest waste of time this side of Rap. Mostly, the singers are stupid teens with no talent singing about love or what a great day it is. Pop artists never touch on serious or meaningful topics, as it would alienate their fanbase.

Simple "music" for simple people.
You can compare pop music to McDonald's. It's readily available and it's advertised everywhere, and it is definately not good for you.

A type of music that is made popular by the screaming of teenage girls and by old men that have crushes on the teenage girls that sing it.
Oh my god, I love that Justin Timberlake he is so cool because I'm a stupid teenage girl with no taste in music.

Man, I would like to get a piece of that Britney Spears, cause I'm old and want to do stuff like that to girls that I never have chance with.
