Founded in 1998, the Popular Music Interest Group is dedicated to promoting the scholarly study of popular music through methods including musical analysis and theory. Our goals include:
• Ensuring academic recognition for popular music research
• Encouraging more scholars of music theory to engage popular repertoires
• Encouraging scholars of popular music to make effective use of musical analysis and theory

On our Humanities Commons site, we rely on our members to help edit this resource — this cooperation will help continually improve the presence of popular music in our classrooms and scholarship. Many thanks!

      Hi Everyone,

      We had a bit of an issue with the new database defaulting to an Excel file rather than a Google Sheet. I’ve converted the database and you should be able to freely edit and add new examples! I will delete the old thread to avoid confusion, but include Christine’s original message below.



      Original Post (from Christine Boone, PMIG Chair)

      We write to you with bad news – the PMIG Examples Database Google Sheet has disappeared. Alyssa has been in touch with past officers and tried to recover it, but what appears to have happened is the owner of the sheet either deleted or closed the account associated with the database. But—we can rebuild! This is where you all come in: we need your examples! What popular music examples do you use when you teach secondary dominants? Lament basslines? AABA form? Add them to the new version of the database! Thank you in advance.
