Pop Music-The True Food of Love Creating Waves

By Treeves Subscribe to RSS | January 24th 2012 | Views:

Music is beautiful. It's a passionate outburst of feelings and emotions and it breaks all kinds of barriers of language, color, caste or creed. Is there anybody on this planet who doesn't love music? In particular pop music attracts me a lot because it has that brobdingnagian effect. Pop music has been originally derived from the word popular and it has the quality of creating an appealing effect on a large number of audiences. The main goal of pop music is to create a pleasurable effect on the audience rather than going in depth to discover artistic knowledge. The first pop music originated in Britain in the mid 1950s.

Talking about pop music, it would be unfair if Michael Jackson is not in the picture. The king of pop was born in Gary, Indiana on August 29, 1958. He was born in a working middle class family and though his father was a guitarist, he quit playing the guitar in order to meet the family's daily expenses. He worked as a crane operator. Michael joined the singing choir of his family when he was about five years of age and he had an immense depth in his voice. He became the lead vocalist in his family. Soon along with his brothers they evolved as Jackson 5. When Michael was 13, he launched his first single in addition to his work with Jackson 5. He performed his famous dance move 'the moonwalk' and performed on "Billie jean "on a television program. "Black or white" became his second biggest single in the year 1991. From then on it was never turning back for the legend. He went on to produce more hits such as "Say Say Say", "beat it" and more.

There are a lot of other singers who added to the glory of pop music such as Celine Dion, Britney spears, spice girls, back street boys, Shakira, and more. To begin with, let's talk about Celine Dion, a Canadian singer whose husband went to the extent of mortgaging his home to provide money for her first record. She is well known for her technically skilled powerful voice. She has remained the all time favorite Canadian singer. She has provided great hits such as "my heart will go on" from the movie titanic and songs like "That's the way it is" and "I'm alive" from the movie Stuart little. Back street boys are an American vocal group formed in Orlando, Florida. The singers included A. J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson. They tasted fame with their debut international album, Back street boys in 1996 and produced their second international album, Back street's back in the following year 1997.

They were in the peak of stardom with the launch of their album, Millennium in the year 1999. Back street boys are the best selling boy bands of all times as they have sold over 130 million records all over the world. Who can forget the gorgeous Britney spears? She was born in Mc Comb and raised in rural Louisiana. As a kid, she excelled in gymnastics and won so many competitions but her ultimate passion was singing. She experienced a big break in her career when she was signed as a Jive Recording Artist in the late 90s. Her debut album, "...Baby one more time" lifted her to the pedestal of success. She sold around 13 million copies for "baby" and 9 million copies of her album, "Oops...I did it again". I recently listened to one of her songs on the internet from the service provider, FiOS Internet. Listening to her songs took me a whole new level. It has been rightly said that music has no barriers. Pop music has definitely come a long way and is continuing to make waves in the music industry.
