The Rolling Stones have developed to become the world’s greatest band of rock and roll through the decades and have brought about influences of the American blues in the world of pop music. They still remain as the most popular live bands of the world. “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “Miss You”, “Paint It, Black”, “Brown Sugar” and “Honky Tonk Women” are some of their important and famous songs.
In the history of pop music, Elton John is known to be the first ever piano player who has released more than fifty popular singles between the years 1972 to 1986.

Some of his popular songs among my favorites are “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Philadelphia Freedom”, “Your Song”, “Bennie and the Jets” and “Daniel”.
During the late 1990s, Britney Spears was the top most pop musician among the teens whose career drowned later in the following decades due to personal problems and bad publicity.
