Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
Popular music, which is one of the most important areas of popular culture, is daily and superficial. It is produced so as to satisfy the current taste of the society and it is consumed quickly. This consumption is so quick that a name or a song which you kept on saying a short while ago disappears in the course of time. The trend of light music which started with arrangements in 1960s evolved into "rock" after a while, and then into "pop", later into "arabesque". From the 1960s until today, many artists have been producing original works in this area. Therefore, popular culture and popular music which is one of the elements of popular culture can not be indeed worthless and banal from a cultural point of view. It reflects the relevant period and it is a crucial part of the culture. However, the form of its production and presentation which is made with commercial concerns trivializes it from an artistic point of view.
