Uh oh...brain itch!
Anyway, this has been on my mind for since...well...forever!
Why is it that the vast majority of pop music comes only from the U.S. and the U.K.?
Think about it. True, Spain and Latin America have their own brand of salsa, etc. but that's not mainstream pop. Of course Latin American performers cross over quite often too.
Japan, the Netherlands, Germany--a few. Feh.
France? Yeah, right.
But after all these decades, it still seems that the US and the UK produce the vast majority of the world's pop. Yes, they borrow from international sources, but you know what I'm sayin', right?
So why is that, anyway?
