Hatch and Milliard indicate that many events in the history of recording in the sass can be seen as the birth of the modern pop music industry, including in country, blues and hillbilly’s music.
Pop is short for popular, and it’s remained the defining term for the ever-changing music favored by the public. Although not specifically applied until the middle of the 20th century, pop music as such can be traced by a few decades before that. Things changed with the advent of recording, early in the 20th century. With that, music had the chance to be much more widely disseminated. Records, played at 78 RPM on wind-up gramophones, were relatively cheap. Len America, that led to a breed of professional songwriters in New York who wrote pieces intended to be recorded and sell well – Tin Pan Alley.
They were largely hacks, but did produce some beautiful material. The first major pop stars as such were the crooners of the sass and ‘ass. Binge Crosby sold millions of records, as did Frank Sinatra (arguably the first modern pop star, with screaming teenage female fans – the bobbysoxer’s), and in Britain, AY Bowl. Curiously, pop music charts as such didn’t exist until 1952, when the first Top Twenty was recorded. It came at an interesting time, as “teenagers” really came into being. Historically there’d been no transitional period between childhood and adulthood. Now, after
World War II, that seemed to begin, imported from America, and in skiff’s, an interpretation of American folk music (personified by Lonnie Donovan), teens found their music. Rockville brought much more of that, and Elvis Presley became a global star, the biggest of the late sass and early sass. But he would find himself supplanted by the Battles, who revolutionized pop by writing their own material, instigating a fashion that remains undiminished. The Battles set the standard for pop music, and it remains undiminished – Battles has become a standard descriptive adjective.
From 1962 until their break up in 1970 they dominated the charts in Britain and America. The Battles influenced a generation – more than one, really – with their melodies and harmonies, and that was apparent in the sass, when pop careened through several styles, from the Glam Rock of T. Rexes to the raw fire of punk. But the biggest pop star to emerge from the period was a singer and pianist, Elton John, whose popularity has remained constant. The idea of artists writing their own material remained in the wake of the FAA Four, although professional songwriters stayed in demand for those enable to pen a tune.
From the early days of rock there had been “manufactured” stars – people taken on board for a pretty face rather than any innate talent, and made into stars by producers. It had happened to Adam Faith, Alvin Stardust and many others, most of whom only enjoyed short careers. The sass proved a moribund decade for pop. Styles came and went, but it was an era short on memorable music. Only Wham! (and later George Michael) emerged as true pop acts. A group of young male singers was assembled for their looks, given catchy songs and arrangements and pushed to fame.
It happened to East 17 and, most memorably, Take That. America saw how it worked and gave the world the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync, and for a few years it worked very well, selling millions of records. But like any fashion, it passed. A female version, the Spice Girls, was briefly huge. Notably, the only ones to come out of this and sustain a solo career was Robbie Williams from Take That and Justine Timberline from ‘N Sync. America tried a similar tactic with female pop stars, and both Maria Carrey and Brittany Spears became massive manufactured stars, followed, to a lesser degree, by Christina Agiler.
