Generic Pop Song

Pop: Short for popular music is a 'popular' form of music where perhaps emphasis is sometimes directed at the spectacle more than the music itself. Having said that, A typical pop song has three main elements: verse, chorus, bridge.

Verse explains whats going on.
Chorus drives home the main idea.
Bridge, provides alternative, or maybe's or another point of view.

Emphasis is place on the words although sometimes a Riff is the most memorable part of the music. Pop music relies heavily on the 'hook' which grabs the audience attention, and the hook can be the lyrics or a Riff or some other part of the song (eg chord structure)
