Mainstream pop music you enjoy
« on: August 27, 2020, 01:27:24 pm »
True music lovers are able to find something to appreciate in any genre.

Gwen Stefani (particularly her days with No Doubt)

Cardigans (First Band on the Moon and Gran Turismo)

MJ (Shamone!)

Blondie (Probably more Pop-Rock, but it was mainstream)

Bruno Mars (Not all of his stuff, but there's no question, this man understands music)

Eurobeat (Ok, I'm kind of cheating here as it's not mainstream or strictly pop, but it's cheesier and more corny than most pop music out there. Still, I can't help loving it since I started listening to while binging on Initial D episodes years ago. Running in the 90s!)

Daft Punk (More EDM, but they make it into the pop charts, so I suppose they're pop. I've learned quite a few things from them on how to beat and groove, since I'm not a drummer)

Dua Lipa has her charm, but I don't put it on actively. Most pop I have and put on is Pop-X, like Electro-Pop or Pop-Rock.  I don't really go for performers, per se, I go for groups who play their own instruments, and there is pop that does that, but it's much more the Alt/Rock/Indie space that does this.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

'First Band on the Moon' is a great album, but it was a 'together with a girlfriend at that time' kind of thing and difficult to get back into.  :sad:

The Cranberries
A-ha
Weeknd (Starboy) - Not surprisingly in collaboration with Daft Punk.

'The Cars'. A bit of a mix, but close enough to pop for a number of their songs. Still enjoy their music.

It was in 2006.

It continued to be in Spanish/Latin pop music thereafter.
