A pop genre originating with African American musicians in the 1950s and 1960s combining elements of gospel, rhythm & blues as well as jazz. Soul became popular for dancing and listening in the US where labels such as Motown, Atlantic and Stax were prevalent.
The 1970's was a rich and varied time for music with artists such as The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac,The Carpenters, Elton John, The Eagles, America, Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Paul McCartney and Wings, Bread and Steely Dan.
The mid-1970s saw the rise of disco music with bands like the Bee Gees, ABBA, Village People, Boney M, Donna Summer, KC and the Sunshine Band.
Hard rock and Heavy metal also emerged with British bands like Led Zeppelin, Free, The Who, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and Judas Priest and Queen . The Australian band AC/DC also found its hard rock origins in the early 1970s and its breakthrough in 1979's Highway to Hell, while popular American rock bands included Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Blue Oyster Cult, Alice Cooper and Kiss.
The mid-'70s saw the rise of punk music, major acts include the Ramones, Stranglers, Blondie, The Sex Pistols and The Clash.
The 1980s saw the rise of MTV and music videos. Michael Jackson and Madonna were the most powerful musicians during this time. Their videos became a permanent fixture on MTV and gained a worldwide mass audience. Michael Jackson's Thriller album from 1982 is the best-selling album of all time.
In the second half of the 1980s teen pop became popular with bands and artists like New Kids on the Block, Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, Tommy Page, New Edition, Stacey Q, The Bangles, Madonna, Olivia Newton-John and others.
Urban pop acts of the 1980s include Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Deniece Williams.

And then there were the New Romantics like The Human League, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Culture Club, Visage and Soft Cell alongside rock bands like Queen, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Europe, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, Guns N' Roses and the successful comebacks of Aerosmith and Alice Cooper.
And the 80's were a rich source of great soul and disco music with Prince, Jermaine Jackson, The Whispers, The S.O.S. Band, Stevie Wonder, Kool & the Gang, Yarbrough and Peoples, Rick James, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie, Earth, Wind & Fire, Dazz Band, Evelyn King, Marvin Gaye, Mtume, DeBarge, Midnight Star, Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson, Sade, Anita Baker, Teddy Pendergrass, Peabo Bryson.
Add with the beginnings of hip hop with Run D.M.C., Beastie Boys, NWA, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Boogie Down Productions, and Ice T, among others and the 80's truly had something for everybody.
A generalist term covering many disparate styles of music though mainly commercial and accessible and easily danced to. Any DJ claiming to specialise in "pop music" in reality has a very wide repertoire suitable for general-purpose mixed age events
|Disco / Funk|
Disco is a wide genre that emerged in the 1970s from the US nightlife scene - typified by four-on-the-floor beats, strings and horns, electric piano and rhythm guitars. Well known disco artists across the world include ABBA, the Bee Gees, Donna Summer, Boney M, Earth, Wind and Fire and many more. A true Disco specialist will unearth classic tunes that you will vaguely recognise but will immediately be able to dance to!
The 2010s saw increased popularisation of hip hop and rap, alongside adult contemporary music from the likes of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Adele, Pink and many others.
Whisperpop became a thing - a hushed vocal style commonly used by artists such as Lana Del Ray, Lorde and Selina Gomez. Traditional instruments made a comeback through artists such as Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers and others.
Electronic dance music experienced a revival after a lull during the early 2000s, with DJs leading much of the creative space - artists such as David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris, Owl City and more.
Teen pop also made a significant comeback through artists such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato.
