OK, you folks toss around this word "pop" like it's a good thing.  I 
thought that "pop" music was whatever is currently appealing to the 
masses, as opposed to being a definable genre of musical style.  So 
when you folks say that Sloan or TH or the SFz or whoever have a 
nice "pop" feel, what the \!/%#$ do you mean?  Define "pop" as a 
musical style rather than simply anything on the Billboard 100.

I always equated pop with Top 40 radio, as something to be avoided.  
Why do you indie-rock types suddenly embrace it?
