  • Andrew Cope from KyalamiOther famous musicians who contributed to the song (and the album New York London Paris Munich) are David Bowie (handclaps) and Phil Gould (drums), who went on to form Level 42 with Mark King. I find it quite astonishing that a musician as talented as Bowie only contributed handclaps!!. But then again, Bowie was a good friend of Robin Scott and happened to living in Montreux at the time, where the album was recorded (Queen’s recording studio, Mountain Studios)
  • AnonymousBrendan from Cape Town .... Ray Parker Jnr took inspiration for His song Ghostbusters From Huey Lewis & The News’ Got A New Drug.... RPJ was actually successfully sued by Huey Lewis for plagiarism.
  • Es Zek from PenangThe voice and the sound very much like Falco or After The Fire.
  • Topher from MinnesotaSaying this song had a "crappy video" is kind of like saying Alexander Graham Bell had a "crappy phone". In 1979 they were basically inventing music video, so of course they're not going to be as good as today (or even as good as five years later.)
  • Maxine from LondonCan anyone recall the film or programme this song featured in?
  • Paul from Detroit, MiLoved the song. Great hook and it was addictive. Yeah, the video was lame, but who was doing videos in 1979? This was a couple years before it's time and I give M kudos for their effort.
  • Brendan from Cape Town, South AfricaRay Parker Jr. reworked the music and used it for the song "Ghostbusters"
  • Bob from Hallanedale, Flgood,catchy song with upbeat tones--crappy video--this guy looks like a Wall Street loser.
    This just shows you that many woman will go for anyone in the Rock and Roll business, even if they look like dweebs
  • Robert from Denver, CoThe bands original name was Q. They changed it to M later on and had to stick with it after this hit.
  • Dale from Santa Fe, NmRobin Scott describes the genesis of "Pop Muzik" this way:

    "I was looking to make a fusion of various styles which somehow would summarize the last 25 years of pop music. It was a deliberate point I was trying to make. Whereas rock and roll had created a generation gap, disco was bringing people together on an enormous scale. That's why I really wanted to make a simple, bland statement, which was, 'All we're talking about basically (is) pop music."

  • Nunzio from Darwin, AustraliaMoonlight & Muzak made No.40 for one week in Australia in Jan,1980.
  • Andrew from London, EnglandNot actually their only hit: the follow up "moonlight and muzak" charted at least in the UK
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandI'm a bit confused, after seeing the video.

    Is the song suposed to simply be a song about Pop? Ir is it taking the piss out of Pop?
  • Seth from Thornhill, CanadaThis has one of the worst music videos, but the song is so catchy.
  • Jeremy from Hopedale, MaU2 sang this song as an intro to there popmart tour (1996-1998).
  • Francois from Paris, FranceI have the vynil version which is a maxi single. On one side there are 2 songs (grooves) intertwined, not one after the other, so depending upon where you drop the needle on the outer side of the disc, you'll hear one or the other. (hope you see what I mean)
  • Adrian from Birmingham, EnglandThis was not M's only chart single in the UK, where it only reached #2.
  • Emery from London, EnglandRobin re-made this song in 2000 as "Pop Muzik Y2K".
