Pop music is, quite simply, whatever is popular during any given era. It is often unfairly regarded as being the less intelligent alternative to grittier genres like rock and rap. What many people fail to realize is that truly great pop music is the product of rare talent and an uncanny ability to predict the progression of mainstream tastes. Golden Oldies Pop music's reputation for being insubstantial dates back to the early days of radio. Songwriters were not expected to be singers, so they sought out people who had great voices. In turn, people with great vocal talent were content to sing other people's songs. If a song was a hit, other singers would release their own versions on the tail of the original. There was a purity to the craft of songwriting that does not exist today. There was also a disconnect between the singers and their songs, since the singers were expressing someone else's feelings.
