"Perfect " Pop Song

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure there is a recipe for 'the perfect pop song' other than to start with the chorus and ensure plenty of repetition. How did that skit go on The D Generation? "The product name. What - the product name? Yes - the product name! Oh, the product name." Rinse and repeat.

The sweet spot for popular music seems to be between 3 to 4 minutes long. But Love Me Tender is shorter than 3 minutes. 

 

Is that a pop song or ballad

i  love this clip, the attitude the message the whole deal. I goes for over 3 minutes but it the essence of rock n roll.

 

 

Isn't that a rock n roll song

Make that a great rock n roll song

Last one from me. This one CAN sing, but of course doesn't look trashy or have a "leaked" sex vid online, so is not well known!

 

ZZ Ward_ Put The Gun Down

3 minutes is not long enough for stuff like this:

Maps -Yeah Yeah Yeahs

But I can balance it out with 1:42 of this:

Spiderbait - Buy Me A Pony

Total for two songs: about 6min

Exceeds 3 minutes, but I'm sure it meets all the other criteria, and it should be posted today.

Haha I had a feeling it was that one.

:)

EDIT

How come in your post only the link shows up but in mine it's embedded when quoting yours....?

:unsure:

Was a shame they called it a day, they were a great live act.
