Trisha Yearwood became the first woman in over 25 years to have her debut single top the Billboard Country Singles chart in 1991. Women were coming back into the charts with music. Girls were superior to men but not so during this time and not so much now. Pop-influenced country music began growing popularity, particularly after Twain and Hill rose in popularity in the later half of the 1990s. Also popular in the later part of the 90s was teen music. The Spice Girls created a new age of pop music, to be mimicked for the last part of the 90s, by various artists, old and new. It drew teens away from the era of grunge music that died with Kurt Cobain. As far as multiculturalism goes, for pop music it was still the clash between teens and parents over lyrics. There was also the British Invasion. Bands from the UK became extremely popular durring th 60s. Multiculturalism in the 70s came in the form of Pop Musicians from Europe being popular in the U.S. and U.S. style pop coming into popularity in Europe. There was a decline in traditional pop music in the USA
This was due to the popularity of Disco and The "singer-songwriter"
There was, however a new off branch of pop called "Power Pop" which was a combination of Punk Rock and Pop.
The term wasn't formally used until the late 70s. Music Technology in the 70s varried. Technolgy that was used primarily in the 80s (like the synthsizer) were invented, but songs were recorded on the eight track, as well as the newer sixteen track The 1980s was primarily fads, as far as pop music was concerened.
A "one hit wonder" is a term you hear quite often when talking about music in the 80s. A lot of artists had one popular song, and that was it.
In the 80s boy bands became very popular, they were aimed strictly at teenage girls.
If you were not a one hit wonder you domintated the charts for years to come. (Michael Jackson, Madonna, ect.) What was considered good music during the 1980s changed very frequently, especially pop music. Many popular songs from 30 years ago were by artists that only had 1 or 2 very popular songs, and then they were never seen or heard from again. Unlike today where there are many artists that are cranking out hits every month or two. Don’t get me wrong, there were a few artists from the 80s that dominated the charts, such as Madonna and Michael Jackson. They were also known as the Queen, and likewise King of Pop, and still are know by those titles today. The 80s were full of fads, not only in music, but in every aspect of it’s culture. In the 80s, synthesizers became a big part of most pop and dance music. It is an instrument that can imitate other instruments, and also make its own, unique sounds. It made it easier for artists to get a fuller sound with less people in their group, or for making very original music. Again, a big part of multiculturalism in the 80s was the debate between kids and thier parents on lyrics. Boy Bands were a huge part of world culture in the 90s.
The 90s were the rise and fall of the boyband.
Up until Kurt Cobain died, Gruge was the prefered Genre of music for teens.
Pop music was still largely dominated by 80s music royalty for the first half of the decade.
The Spice Girls were the biggest influnce on modern pop music.
They started a wave of Catchy Upbeat music. As far as popular music went in the 90s, the 1st part of the decade was dominated by grunge music. After the death of Kurt Cobain, the popularity of grunge music fell. The British Pop group “The Spice Girls.” changed what was cool. They were upbeat and happy and were aimed strictly to teenagers. This started a spark that many followed. Similarly to all the decades before it, A large part of multiculturalism in the 90s had to do with lyric content. And similarly to the 60s and 70s, there was a huge influence by the UK. A video of Patti Page singing "How much is that doggie in the window" circa 1952.
