Pop Rock
Pop rock (also typeset as pop/rock[4]) is rock music with a greater emphasis on professional songwriting and recording craft, and less emphasis on attitude.[1] Originating in the 1950s as an alternative to rock and roll, early pop rock was influenced by the beat, arrangements, and style of rock and roll (and sometimes doo-wop).[1] It may be viewed as a distinct genre field, rather than music that overlaps with pop and rock.[4] The detractors of pop rock often deride it as a slick, commercial product, less authentic than rock music.[5]Contents1 Characteristics and etymology 2 Debates 3 See also 4 ReferencesCharacteristics and etymology[edit] See also: Power pop Further information: Pop music

Ballad
A ballad /ˈbæləd/ is a form of verse, often a narrative set to music. Ballads derive from the medieval French chanson balladée or ballade, which were originally "danced songs''. Ballads were particularly characteristic of the popular poetry and song of the British Isles from the later medieval period until the 19th century. They were widely used across Europe, and later in Australia, North Africa, North America
North America
and South America. Ballads are often 13 lines with an ABABBCBC form, consisting of couplets (two lines) of rhymed verse, each of 14 syllables. Another common form is ABAB or ABCB repeated, in alternating 8 and 6 syllable lines. Many ballads were written and sold as single sheet broadsides. The form was often used by poets and composers from the 18th century onwards to produce lyrical ballads
