Sure, we all love shred, rock, blues, jazz, funk, classical and all kinds of metal music, but pop music is something we all hate... or is it? Not me atleast, theres some pop that is really good and should be brought to attention!


Marit Larsen is just freakin amazing, shes young, got a beautiful voice and plays very, very awesome acoustic pop. And she is very beautiful rolleyes.gif

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vME8Rgr8Na8 - Don't save me
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_i4ArMNAFM - Under the surface
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUrALU2zOTI - Only a fool



Trang Fødsel is kinda jazzy pop, I guess. They are super amazing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGGzsskpBVU - Kursiv(a freakin classic)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMH2A6uaYks - Drømmedame



Odd Nordstoga isnt exactly pop, but theres pop elements aswell as bluegrass, rock and folk. His older stuff got alot more pop and rock elements, even metal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26rVfHYFcwk - Heim te mor
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqIvt2KizCM - Fuggel i karmen



Robert Randolph and the Family band funky rock, RnB, pop something laugh.gif

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lissdIckly4 - Deliver me
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSldvVbVM3Y - The thrill of it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JllmLlz-UP4...feature=related - Ain't nothing wrong with that


Sure these guys sings in norwegian, excluding Marit Larsen and Randolph, but come on, have a listen wink.gif
I have never had problems with listening to foreign languages, for instance, Pavels old band kicks ass even though alot of it isnt sung in english biggrin.gif

I'll post more if I can think of anything.

Anyway, dont be shy people, post some quality pop music wink.gif

Gotta love michael tongue.gif

I absolutely love Prince too. He's amazing. And he can shred too wink.gif

How about the beatles? Their early stuff was quite pop.

Nothing wrong with it, I just find it to be a genre that is more full of bad music than most, but of course there is good stuff to be found.

I would argue that John Butler is not pop. He's just popULAR biggrin.gif
And not trying to be argumentative but Sarah Blasko is more on the indie side of things for sure. Both good artists. JB plays a mean 11 string.

I thought Pop meant Popular? the new john butler cd is pop music, nothing like their previous albums which i love.

Indie? Thats a new word for me, I am just going by what I hear all the time on the radio.

Does Pop mean crap? Maybe you can clear this up for me as I have been thinking wrong for years.

Edit: I read up on it on Wikipedia, turns out pop music is music you can dance to. And often not written by the singer.

Hello to everyone!
I just wanted to say that I love music in general.
And I also think that the most important thing is the SONG.
If a song is great, then I don't really care how it is arranged.
A great song remains a great song!
But this is just my opinion. smile.gif
I wish a lovely day to everyone!
Eddie

Nothing wrong with a bit of pop, infact nothing wrong with any type of music if it makes someone happy! smile.gif

Muris has picked out some good Pop Artists, I like Michael Jackson, Sting, Abba etc

Yes it is short for popular but there are grades of popularity and I see 'pop' as music made with commercial goals as primary. That's just me.
It's very subjective and I would agree that JBT has taken a much more commercial approach with Grand National but it's still not 'pop' to me.
I don't think pop means crap - but many would argue that point...I'm with Eddiecat on this one laugh.gif
