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!

    Greetings, Popular Music Interest Group!

    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? Please click here and add to our new spreadsheet – we can make it even better than before! Thanks in advance for your help!


    Your PMIG officers: Alyssa Barna, Christine Boone, Matt Ferrandino, and Megan Lavengood
