Default Re: Power-pop

Pop can be interpreted in a lot of ways, it can mean popular music, or musically commercial, especially by being tuneful, up-tempo, and repetitive..

Power Pop is more like Hannah Montana, Tess Tyler, or The Jonas Brothers. it usually incorporates a combination of musical devices such as crisp vocal harmonies, strong melodies, economical arrangements, and prominent guitar riffs.

What? Power Pop = Hard Rock + Pop (as in the Kinks or the Beatles, not Madonna)

Power-pop is a big genre. It can be:

The Beatles or The Kinks
Cute Is What We Aim For or We The Kings
Hannah Montana or Jonas Brothers

Like any other genres, it has good and bad music. Some artists are trying to appeal to everyone, some to teenagers, and some to 8-year olds (like the latter bands).

Classic and under-rated sounds from a great band.

I'll take the approach from the classic period of Power Pop:

September Gurls-Big Star
Starry Eyes-The Records
No Matter What-Badfinger
Go All the Way-The Raspberries
Ever Fallen in Love-Buzzcocks
Cruel to be Kind-Nick Lowe
Teenage Kicks-The Undertones

That's a short list for starters but that's off the top of my head.
