In the early sixties, a young man from the south of the United States began to write music. He made his first record. This man was Elvis Presley. Eight million people bought his record. It became the first number of the top of all the country's radio stations. It was also one of the first modern pop records. This was the beginning of a new genre - pop music. Pop music became very popular. It started a new era. Such songs told about love, relationships between young people and other topics that are very important for the younger generation. This kind of music can be funny or sad, but it does not change its essence. There were already many music genres in America in the fifties. But only pop music won people's hearts.
