The difference between pop and classical music from the point of view of Ramin Farajnejad, a famous and popular Iranian pop singer

It is completely different from classical music or art music and folk music. But since the word pop or pop includes many melodic works in the genres of rock, hip hop, rap, heavy metal, techno and rock opera, it can be concluded that pop music has no clear definition.

Pop music is defined as a style of music that is commercially produced and aims to generate financial gain. According to Simon Ferritt, a music critic and sociologist and popular music expert, pop music is essentially an industry, not an art. However, this form of music can also be interpreted in terms of production and marketing, ideology and aesthetics. Simply put, pop music is produced and produced in a way that attracts all sections of society and is attractive to everyone to hear. But it has no specific roots and is not supposed to take into account the tastes of a particular class. Pop music is characterized by a heavy rhythmic element below, which is usually performed by electronic amplifiers, and the main melody dominates this rhythm. Pop songs are also popular songs that people like to whisper and sing. Pop music is commercially successful and is a favorite style of radio stations because it is accessible, easy to remember and attracts a large audience. Pop concerts sometimes attract so many spectators that they can only be performed in large sports stadiums. What is classical music?
The origin of the word classic is derived from the word clasious meaning royal. Classical music is the name given to Western traditional music, especially European. The reason for naming this style of music is not clear and many efforts have been made to find the roots of this naming. And classical music in general is a period of music that began in the late eighteenth century and continued until the mid-nineteenth century; But on the other hand, the word classical music is a style of music that can be used and repeated in most different periods of music history before the twentieth century. Like Schubert’s songs in nineteenth-century Germany, he is an example of classical music, while Schubert has historically been a composer of the Romantic period, and the general form of his music is romantic. Thus, “classical music” is not a specific piece or song, but differs from the concept of a style or period in the history of music. By all accounts, the sixteenth-century composer Palestrina has been a classical example of church music for many years (even today) and has been a strong reference for melodists of later centuries.
