POP MUSIC AIN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE BUT IT'S STILL AROUND
People my age often lament the lack of good pop tunes being done today as compared to the Fabulous 60's. There is some truth in that statement. However, some good pop artists are turning out really good tunes. Far less than during that time some sixty years ago. You just have to be open minded and look for it. And it's even more challenging to find decent Christmas Pop Tunes, much less Rock & Roll. I mean Mariah Carey released her Merry Christmas Album in 1994. That's twenty six years ago!!
One Pop Singer, Bruno Mars, has been around since 2010 releasing a variety of high quality pop tunes. His most famous tune, Uptown Funk, was released in 2014. This guy has sold over 130 million records, so somebody thinks he's pretty good, including me.
Take a listen to Bruno's live arrangement of White Christmas on The Today Show - No. 14 on The 2020 Christmas Countdown - Bruno Mars performs Snow White.
Next up - Justin Beiber became a teen sensation at the tender young age of sixteen. He was tagged as the King of Teen Pop. Selling over 150 million records, he continues to impress with his talent as a singer and performer. The second cut on todays' countdown - Justin Beiber doing Mistletoe.
In the tradition of groups like the Hi-Los, Take 6 and other a cappella performers, PENTATONIX has brought us amazing vocals and creative arrangements to every song they do., winning three Grammys along the way. So, enjoy this very cool pop version of PENTATONIX performing Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree.
Christmas Music just makes the day go better.
