the UK top 40 in 2016 has been in the genre of ``pop music``, but is there like another term for it which narrows it down to a simpler genre term? I've liked the music in the uk top 40 this year and I think its to do with the music being in a similar genre

(ok its pop music but with for example there's rock music, but there's also say classical rock music, or hip hop music which narrows a genre down so people know what they're looking for when they're after similar song choices),

so what genre does the uk top 40 fit into atm? if there's a narrower genre it would help find other songs in the same genre

thanks (sorry if i don't use the right music terms, I think genre is the right term though for song types)

Can you give me some examples?
so mostly the stuff on the iTunes music Charts top 40 e.g. The Chainsmokers (most recent songs), Walk the Moon (shut up and dance), Lukas Graham (7 years/Mama Said), Dancing on my Own (Calum Scott), Reggie and Bollie (New Girl). Hold my Hand (Jess Glynne), You Don't know Love (Olly Murs), Adele (all songs), Ed Sheeran (most songs), Galantis (No Money / Peanut Butter Jelly)

I think most of these are pretty bouncy / songs to dance to
just gone through my Spotify playlist which i'v been adding to when new songs have been released trying to find some artists I'm not really a One Direction person at all which probably isn't helping my music case :l

In this case I presume pop means popular music (which covers all genres) rather than the pop genre. The two are used interchangeably, but they're technically different things. It's all about context.
