Why is pop music so popular?
Most pop songs get stuck in your head, there over played, kids tv shows always play them, the media makes them bigger in my opinion. Parents rather there children listen to pop then rock or indie and stuff I guess. All that's just my opinion though
Because its all they play on the radio! -.-
It has pop in POPular.
For the most part, it's more upbeat
I think it's just because it has an up beat feeling, a younger message, and a lot of pop music singers are younger, so more of the younger people will like it.
It is a fun type of music! It comes in so many different types of beats and it's fun to dance to and sing along with.
It's in the name. Further more, it's played CONSTANTLY, so it gets jammed into everybody's head. When everyone likes it, it becomes popular.
Pop music is simplistic and appeals to basic senses. The tunes are catchy, have interesting lyrics, heavy beat and bass lines and are easy to remember. You can say the same thing about rap music. That certainly has no redeeming value or deep musical content and yet it's holding its own in popularity.
Pop stands for popular. So your question is 'why is popular music so popular?'
