Name ?I do not, yet have a firm name choice for this magazine. I do however have two ideas.BreezyLoungeWhat do you think is better ?Euro-pop Magazine
Europop a Brief HistoryThis type of music originates from Europe in the 1970s.Music has come from Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Ireland and the Netherlands.However, most of this style of music is from a Swedish origin.Although produced in many countries, one main feature of it is that is is primarily in English.The main difference between American and European pop is that European music is more centered around dance.
The ArtistsThe term Euro-pop covers quite a wide range of music, some of which you will have heard of and some you wont.Artists that are within this Genre or are heavily influenced by it include.
The Magazine There are very few, if any, magazines of this genre on British shelves. We are part of Europe, although are not on the continent, often meaning we seem to not share many of the European customs. This has also been reflected in our music tastes in recent years, American Artists making up a large proportion of the top 40 in the UK charts on a weekly basis. This shows that our musical influence is coming from across the Atlantic when we have a thriving music scene right on our doorstep. Eurovision Potential for a special edition ?
