Pop Song.

'Birdland' by Weather Report. Released in 1977, it reached #30 on the Billboard Hot 100.

While wholly in the key of G, it weaves in and out of different strains: major, minor, blues, and mixolydian modal.

It features Jaco Pastorius and Wayne Shorter.

Yeah… Pop.

The Music Snobs break down Pop as it was, as it is and as it will be - listen right here.
