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?
