This is the $64,000 question. Just because something is simple and formulaic doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad music. It’s music that sells. It’s the McDonald’s of music. Artists often break into pop and leave it for their first love. Or leave their first love to pay off debt. Either way, it sells for a reason — mass appeal.

Um. Everything. You want people to have a good time and dance, right? Yes! Then you need a variety of music that appeals across all genres and to all people. That’s pop. As a wedding couple, you want people to be happy and enjoy your party. Feel free to throw in some of your favorites, too. Just clear it with your professional wedding planner and DJ first.
