Wonky Pop!

So I was just reading about Dan Black on Wikipedia (he sings "Symphonies," on the current Preston Beat playlist below,) and they described him as "wonky" pop! I've never heard of this term before so I looked that up as well and apparently it was created by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) to describe "quirky, catchy and credible pop." Some artists that were mentioned: Lady Gaga, Kid Cudi, Mika, Florence and The Machine, La Roux, M.I.A. and The Ting Tings! Maybe this term is wildly popular and I just haven't heard about it yet but either way, I thought it was interesting.

The fact that we have to now create a term that differentiates pop music and pop music that is actually creative and has some artistic merit says something about where pop music is going now-a-days...just a thought...
