I love analytical and your point is a good one. Please forgive me for using a ten cent word but I kind of like an inductive approach to problem-solving, coming up with a bunch of examples and seeing if a general rule follows. I wondered what came to people's mind when they think of '"pop music" and eldee's definition helps me narrow it down. I know Clay's upcoming CD has been criticized for not being edgy, but if you are going for a pop style is that part of the equation?

I guess I wondered if what I thought of as pop is what others do as well and helps me put some of the comments aimed at Clay's music into perspective.
Incidentally, I am back into listening to "pop" to hear for Clay's songs on the radio. Not sure how long this will last, some good stuff out there but alot that's hard to listen too IMO.
I know I'm showing my age, but my younger son (15) wanted to hear a Michael Jackson's song that he head heard on a Simpson's episode. Not sure which song it was but I took out two MJ albums and proceeded to instruct him on how to use the record player. He had no clue. He even asked if the other side had music on it and it has been so long that I played an actual record, I had forgotten that you had to turn the dang thing over to remind myself !
would rather be cruising!
However, Michael Jackson is the self-proclaimed King of Pop. So basically, he gave himself that name! I don't think he's the king of anything.
