Popular Music
Popular music is music created as a commercial product. It is usually distinguished
from classical music and from folk music. Classical music is written chiefly for concerts,
operas, and ballets. Folk music is the traditional music of a particular group or community
of people, such as an occupational, ethnic, or regional group. Folk music is usually learned
by listening to another person rather than by reading music. There are many different
styles of popular music in the United States, including bluegrass, blues, country, gospel,
jazz, musical comedy, rap, reggae, and rock. In some cases, the categories of popular,
folk, and classical music overlap. For example, jazz and country music evolved out of folk
traditions. Some styles, such as blues and bluegrass, exist both as popular music and as
folk music. Such classical composers as Leonard Bernstein and Louis Moreau Gottschalk
have written pieces in the style of popular music. Although much popular music expresses
sentiments of love, other popular songs serve as a vehicle for social commentary. Popular
music is frequently thought to have meaning only for the time in which it was created.
However, many popular songs have endured for decades.
