History of Pop Music by Ali Bahrami Sadatabadi


Pop music is usually defined as music that is commercially produced or produced for financial gain.

According to Simon Frith, a music critic and sociologist specializing in popular music, pop music is known as an industry, not an art.

Of course, this music can also be interpreted in terms of market, ideology, production and aesthetics.

In fact, “pop” is designed to be fun for everyone and does not come from anywhere and is not meant to appeal to any particular taste.

This music was not created as a result of any meaningful desire, and the only ambition of its creators is material profit and reward, and … by musical definitions, it is also very conservative.

Pop music is something that has been provided from above (recording companies, radio producers and advertisers) and has not been asked of the people.

 Pop is music that is professionally produced and packaged and is not something that can be changed to your liking or change its form.

In other words, pop music is a type of music that started in the 50’s and what is included in this collection is usually attractive to a large group of people.

With the advent of plastic or vinyl records in the 1930s and the advent of compact discs or CDs in the 1980s, recorded music became more accessible than live music. Pop songs are usually performed in 3 minutes.
