    For me, the thin white Duke, D Bowie.

    He’s such a legend, I’ll even forgive him the post – 80s embarrassments.

    I am too young to have witnessed the Stones/Who/Beatles in their heydays but suspect they might be up there otherwise. Many others merit a mention, not least Abba, Blur, U2…

    Yours?

    depends how you define “pop” I wouldn’t classify the who or the stones as pop.

    Mine would probably be madness, although I don’t listen to them much nowadays.

    Thom Yorke maybe – I don’t really think I could pick one person, though.

    gotta be Michael Jackson

    Another one for Michael Jackson.

    Thriller (as an album) is a masterpiece – with Billie Jean as my favourite ever song for dancin’.

    Quite a number have been on my list over the years, but if asked at this moment in time, I’d have to say Muse as despite whatever my musical meanderings are, I keep coming back to them.

    I don’t do pop.

    My vote is the legendary Van Morrison.

    Michael Jackson for me too!

    I think the Stones and Who were definitely pop acts.

    Jacko. Although it all went a bit wrong after Bad, that & Thriller were classics.

    Why is it somehow beneath you? Beatles were a pop band as were the Beach Boys and 1000’s of other bands and singers that did fantastic tunes.

    Van Morrison, however, is less blinkered and does do pop, thankfully

    We all have quite obviously different definitions of what ‘Pop’ is going by some of the suggestions.

    I go by the University Challenge definition of “Popular Music” which seems to be anything that isn’t “Classical” 🙂

    If we are talking ‘pop’ as opposed to ‘rock’ then it has to be Blondie. MJ, The Carpenters and Abba I respect as purveyors of beautifully crafted pop, but I wouldn’t say that I liked them particularly.

    Prince deserves a mention for some quality stuff in the 80’s, the decade that music forgot 😉

    All time, then it has to be ‘The boss’.

    If we’re talking 80s, Depeche Mode.

    East 17! For being a bunch of unruly scumbags. The Christmas video was pure genius… “Let’s dress them up in white so they look angelic and lovable OH DEAR GOD”
