Classic Hit Academy -Songs About Music- Pop Music - M

English musician and producer Robin Scott set out to record a song that not only commented on the progression of pop music but one fused a variety of styles which somehow would summarise the last 25 years of pop music

Originally recorded as an R&B track, a friend of Scott’s suggested he make it( at least for the times) contemporary by recording it as a synth pop song.

Recording as the artist “M” he released the song in May of 1979 in the UK but it was in Canada that the song first hit #1 in October.
