Default Question about Elvis Radio.

Why does Sirius have Elvis Radio listed under pop? Being a old fan of the King of Rock & Roll, I consider that an insult.

But I'm still happy that it's on the air!

In a way, pop is short for popular, so placing him in the pop category is acceptable.

I think "pop" is a perfectly acceptable term to use for artists with mass appeal.

Yeah... but here's the problem. That would put Elvis in the same genre as Michael Jackson. I think there needs to be a 20 foot rule when talkin' about those two.

I think that Elvis radio is just fine where it's at. Yes Elvis was the king of rock & roll but he was a big part of the popular music scene. The stuff we think of as pop music today really is a new form a music created by boy bands and girls that try to have that sex look going for them.

Almost like why they put Radio Margaritaville on "POP"?

I think the 20 year rule is good enough.

I think when this re-structuring happens (don't hold me to that, just what I've heard) everything will be put in a good place.

Yah know, MJ was Elvis' son-in-law for a while. I know the King had to be spinning in his grave. lol

I consider that proof that Elvis didn't fake his death. Because if Elvis was alive, Michael wouldn't be.

the term "pop" has a somewhat dubious meaning. most of the 50s and 60s stuff is listed under pop, instead of rock and roll. placing music in a particular genre is not always that easy to do, as i am finding out as i load stuff onto my ipod.

for example, is rockabilly country or rock ? what i have been doing is that if the artist uses banjos and fiddles in much of his songs, then i place it in the country category. if not, then rock.

i am placing most of the artists in rock that were considered rock at the time.

how about the difference between pop and "easy listening" ?

even the cddb data base has some inconsistencies.

Rockabilly is rock, as the first part of the name states. I don't know of any significant rockabilly artists who used banjos and fiddles.

The instruments used most often were guitars, snare drums and sometimes standup bass.

hi rm,

bear family has released quite a few rockabilly cds with artists using country instruments.

curtis gordon, for example, has a wonderful country version of "jump and jive".

Curtis Gordon is correctly classified as a Western Swing artist, who has done a little Rockabilly on the side over the years.

The vast majority of what he has put out over the years is clearly Western Swing, not Rockabilly.

Classifying Gordon as a Rockabilly artist is similar to classifying the Beatles as a R&B group, simply because they recorded a little R&B in their early days.
