Electropop Electropop is a pop-oriented form of electronic music primarily consisting of the use of synthesizers. The genre has seen a revival of popularity and influence since the late 2000s. "Electropop" is the short form of "electronic pop". The term was used during the 1980s to describe a form of synthpop characterized by an emphasized electronic sound — often described as cold and robotic — and by minimal arrangements. This was mainly due to the limitations of the analog synthesizers and recording techniques used at the time, but has since become a stylistic choice. Electropop laid the groundwork for a mass market in chart-oriented synthpop. Electropop songs are pop songs at heart, often with simple, catchy hooks and dance beats, but differing from those of electronic dance music genres which electropop helped to inspire — techno, house, electroclash, etc. — in that songwriting is emphasized over simple danceability.

It was prefigured in the 1960s and early 1970s by the use of synthesizers in progressive rock, electronic art rock, disco and particularly the "Krautrock" of bands like Kraftwerk. It arose as a distinct genre in Japan and the United Kingdom in the post-punk era as part of the new wave movement of the late-1970s to the mid-1980s. In the late 1980s, duos such as Erasure and Pet Shop Boys adopted a sound that was highly successful on the US dance charts, but by the end of the decade synthpop had largely been abandoned. The genre has received criticism for alleged lack of emotion and musicianship; prominent artists have spoken out against detractors who believed that synthesizers themselves composed and played the songs.

Fréhel, de son vrai nom Marguerite Boulc'h, née à Paris, au numéro 2 du boulevard Bessières, le 13 juillet 1891, et morte dans cette même ville le 3 février 1951, était une chanteuse qui a marqué la période de l'entre-deux-guerres. Marguerite est la fille d'un couple de bretons originaire de Primel-Trégastel, hameau de la commune de Plougasnou (Finistère). Son répertoire « réaliste » commence à la faire connaître entre 1908 et 1910. En 1925, l'« inoubliable inoubliée » remonte sur les planches de l'Olympia pour le plus grand plaisir d'un public qui ne se lasse pas de ses couplets réalistes. Le 30 avril 1935, elle épouse à Paris Georges Boettgen. En 1950, Robert Giraud et Pierre Mérindol inviteront Fréhel à se produire devant le public parisien dans une ancienne salle de bal, les Escarpes, située près de la place de la Contrescarpe.
The 13 Most Underrated Madonna Songs | Pandora Boxx Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Madonna fan. I have been since I was a wee lad dancing around my bedroom lip-syncing to "Borderline". Amid some Madonna leakage, she released six tracks (which I'm loving) early from her 13th album Rebel Heart (due out on March 10, 2015). She has so many amazing songs that it's hard to remember every last one. 13. The message and lyrics are simple. 12. Madonna may be an "Unapologetic Bitch" but "Bye Bye Baby" may be one of the sweetest sounding piss-off songs. (She if you can spot Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba in this video from The Girlie Show.) 11. This is the third song released from American Life. 10. Is it autobiographical? 9. Madonna clearly is a woman scorned, again and again (squish, squish, Madge). 8. Her Like a Prayer album is probably her most personable to date and one of her all time best. 7. "Ray of Light" is a brilliant album and marked a different, spiritual infused turn for Madonna. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.
