When I think pop, I think Justin Bieber and One Direction - the modern-day pop. 80's pop AKA rock is ok. I see rock and pop (remember, modern pop) as two different genres.

There's something strangely ironic about the unpopularity of pop music. Maybe it should be renamed.

I suppose this could depend on your definition of pop music. What, to you, is pop music? When I think of 'pop music', I think of the overplayed stuff you hear everywhere that most people listen to because it's 'cool' or popular- something like the Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga. Of course, pop music has changed- some of what was considered 'pop' in the 80's would now be considered rock today. Maybe you are listening to music that is different than whatever everyone else considers 'pop'- or maybe you like that kind of music. I'm not here to argue about music tastes, or judge your opinions. What is your definition of 'pop music'? Why does it appeal to you? Thoughts? Anyone?

(Uh, don't take this the wrong way, please, I'm not trying to deride your opinion. Just wanted to know your thoughts. Thanks! :D)

It's certainly ambiguous. And I'm all for embracing the ostracized and rejecting the standard clich├ęs. But while I completely agree that they're overplayed, I don't think that changes the fact that many of the songs can be meaningful and allow people to emotionally connect with them. I suppose Adele is my example of this. A lot of people find her inspirational and her songs particularly moving or appreciate the extent to which they can relate to them.

There are people that listen to pop music for the sake of being cool, and I think that it is completely justified to disapprove of such people; I don't think the fault can be attributed to the music though.
