Genre research project 47/1359: Pop rock


Pop rock is a music genre which mixes a catchy pop style and light lyrics in its (typically) guitar-based rock songs. There are varying definitions of the term, ranging from a slower and mellower form of rock music to a subgenre of pop music. The detractors of pop rock often deride it as a slick, commercial product, less authentic than rock music.

Much pop and rock music has been very similar in sound, instrumentation and even lyrical content. The terms "pop-rock" and "power pop" have been used to describe more commercially successful music that uses elements from, or the form of, rock music. Pop-rock has been defined as an "upbeat variety of rock music represented by artists such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Everly Brothers, Rod Stewart, Chicago, and Peter Frampton."

Searching for something else to peruse? Tired of the same old chick-lit, thrillers, sentiments, and adolescent vampire books? In case you're similar to the vast majority you listen to shake music-on the radio, on CDs, and at shows. Trust it or not, there is a developing classification of fiction gave to shake music and rock artists. Here are some key titles. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/03/rock-music-genre.html
