These boots are made for walking

Good pop songs are not just chart-toppers, they are contagious ditties with a chorus you can’t ignore and a beat that brings you to your feet. They can trigger memories from your past that only finding an old diary can truly unlock. They leave you aching for more and repeat in your mind long after you hear the song played.

The Beach Boys got it absolutely right with Wouldn’t It Be Nice – a gentle blend of complex harmonies and tender lyrics that wash over you like a warm soapy bath. The band perfectly captured a youthful essence of American culture, and when you listen to their music some thirty years after it was penned, it still feels like it was written just for you.

Pop is sentimental; it’s playful and danceable. Songs that inspire you to get up and move, like Madonna’s Holiday or Outkast’s Hey Ya!, hint that when the beat is right, the catchy wordplay will follow.

The Beatles gave birth to pop with songs such as Can’t Buy Me Love. Cheap Trick hooked us with I Want You to Want Me and The Undertones brought mod and pop to the dance floor with Teenage Kicks. A decade later The Verve found pop bliss in the druggy mysticism of The Drugs Don’t Work, The truth is that Pop is like a candy addiction – it’s deliciously good and has you lusting after a second scoopful.
