'''Pop music''' (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is a [[music genre|genre]] of [[popular music]] which originated in the 1950s, deriving from [[rock and roll]].<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref> The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of any form of music which is popular (and can include any genre), whilst the latter is a specific genre of music which has qualities which would make it appealing to a large audience.<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref> Pop music, as a genre, is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles throughout its course such as [[urban contemporary|urban]], [[dance music|dance]], [[rock music|rock]], [[Latin music|Latin]] and [[country music|country]],<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref> yet there are core elements which define it. Such include generally short-to-medium length songs, written in a basic format which is often the [[verse-chorus]] structure, which generally make usage of repeated choruses, have a melodic sound, and have catchy [[hook (music)|hook]]s.<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref> So-called "pure pop" music, such as [[power pop]], features all these elements, and for instrumentation uses [[electric guitar]]s, [[drum]]s and a [[Bass (guitar)|bass]];<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref> in the case of such music, the main goal is usually that of being pleasurable to listen to, rather than having much artistic depth.<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref> Pop music is generally thought of as a genre which is commercially recorded and desires to appeal to a mass audience.<ref>http://top40.about.com/od/popmusic101/a/popmusic.htm</ref>

David Hatch and Stephen Millward define pop music as "a body of music which is distinguishable from popular, jazz and folk musics".<ref>D. Hatch and S. Millward, ''From Blues to Rock: an Analytical History of Pop Music'' (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1987), ISBN 0-7190-1489-1, p. 1.</ref> Although pop music is often seen as oriented towards the [[Record chart|singles charts]] it is not the sum of all chart music, which has always contained songs from a variety of sources, including [[Classical music|classical]], [[jazz]], [[rock music|rock]], and [[novelty song]]s, while pop music as a genre is usually seen as existing and developing separately.<ref>R. Serge Denisoff and William L. Schurk, ''Tarnished Gold: the Record Industry Revisited'' (New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Publishers, 3rd edn., 1986), ISBN 0-88738-618-0, pp. 2–3.</ref> Thus "pop music" may be used to describe a distinct genre, aimed at a youth market, often characterized as a softer alternative to [[rock and roll]].<ref name=Firth2001/>
