   Pop (an abbreviation of the word “popular”) music exists for mass-market appeal. Ideally, the intention of pop music is to achieve instant memorability. Most pop music is developed from a well-structured combination of repetitive melody and lyric lines (referred as “hooks”) that convey messages of varying importance. Pop is even more chameleon-like than rock in the way it can exist in e seemingly endless array of styles while maintaining its essential structural qualities. Generaly pop’s spiritual home is Top 40 and middle-of-the-road adult radio formats.[1]

     Alhough pop is rarely more than a fairly pleasant diversion, at its best it can possess powerful  sentiment  and melodic invention that transcend mere craftsmanship; consider, for example, a deceptively simple song like the BeatlesYesterday”. Exaples: Bread, the Carpenters, Neil Diamond, Michael Bolton, Art Garfunkel, Lionel Richie, Sade, Simply Red, Dione Warwick, and Swing Out Sister.[1]

     Pop rock is description is applied to a commercially accessible blend or pop song craftsmanship and production values, which still incorporates elements of rock’s immediacy. Artists who have delved into this approach include: Bon Jovi, Peter Frampton, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel,  the Guess Who, Extreme, and World Party.[1]
