Talk about Pop music - Camury reporting...

Ever heard the song “Pop Muzik” by Robin Scott from way back in 1979?   You’re forgiven if you haven’t, it was a bit cheesy even back then.

Get up, get down

Radio, video, boogie with a suitcase
Your livin' in a disco, forget about the rat race
Let's do the milkshake, sellin' like a hotcake
Try some, buy some fee-fi-fo-fum

Get up, get down

That got me thinking about pop music and how it came to be a genre.  It originated in its modern form in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid 1950's. The terms "popular music" and "pop music" are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music that is popular and includes many styles. "Pop" and "rock" were synonymous terms until the late 1960's, when they were increasingly used in opposition from each other.

Pop music is eclectic, and often borrows elements from other styles such as urban, dance, rock, Latin and country.

Characteristics of pop music include an aim of appealing to a general audience, rather than to a particular sub-culture or ideology, and an emphasis on craftsmanship rather than formal "artistic" qualities.  Music scholar Timothy Warner said it typically has an emphasis on recording, production, and technology, rather than live performance; a tendency to reflect existing trends rather 
than progressive developments and aims to encourage dancing or uses dance-oriented rhythms.

Music and dancing are the back bone of Second Life’s social scene and there a many dance clubs in SL that welcome you with friendly staff and a great mix of music.  You can be sure that you will find a club that plays your kind of music.
