[1 - 11] What is popular music?

Popular music in some respect can be referred to music that is popular and current in the chart's. Being purchased and listened to by the mainstream consumer. However popular music doesn't have to be stuck in that bracket of the mainstream music scene.

Popular music can be broken down into practically any music genre, artist or band. Whatever music that has been produced and released to the public. Has a following of people who enjoy the music can be classed as popular music in that certain bracket of music genre.

For instance Opera music can be classed as popular music. Even though this genre of music isn’t releasing hit singles in the top 40 chart, making it un-popular to the mainstream consumers.
It is still popular to people to who actually listen to Opera music, therefore making this genre of music popular in that section of consumers.
