Rock and pop remained roughly synonymous until the late s, after which pop became associated with music that was more commercial, ephemeral, and accessible. Although much of the music that appears on record charts is seen as pop music, the genre is distinguished from chart music. Identifying factors usually include repeated choruses and hooks , short to medium-length songs written in a basic format often the verse-chorus structure , and rhythms or tempos that can be easily danced to.
