The phrase 'pop song' first appeared in 1926 as a description of a piece of art 'having a popular appeal'. A couple of decades later, in the 1950s, people started to use the term 'Pop music', again characterizing it only as an abbreviation of the popular music during that time. However, even if 'Pop music' has became the international term of widely commercial music (which in fact can include any other style), it managed to distinguish from the big ocean of music genres. Today, Pop music as we know it, is electric and energetic, including rock, Latin, dance and even country elements. Its main purpose is to encourage dancing and make us hum the latest summer hit.
