Till We Meet Again, Maybe: Going Defunct

The Pop Song History blog is going defunct. It has been a fun journey through the history of popular songs in America throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; I have learned a great deal and have been acquainted of some great yet forgotten songs from this exciting time in American culture. But there are more important things that will occupy my time shortly, namely, graduate school. At any rate, the essays already on my site will continue to be available (actually, viewership of the Pop Song History blog has doubled since March and tripled since October, so I guess the essays have had some usefulness). There is another essay in production about songs and the start of Prohibition, but I have not made up my mind whether I want to finish it or not. Thank you to my very few dedicated readers around the world for your continued interest; that’s right, internationally, y’all.  If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

About morganhowland

I am a recent college graduate with a degree in American History. I am also a music nerd who likes keeping up with current music and knowing anything about pop songs of the past. Combining the two ambitions into a blog of essays on various topics of popular song history seems like an appropriate thing to do.

    Always a delight to read such well thought out essays. Good luck with graduate school and writing.

      Thank you Mabel for your compliment. Out of curiosity, as an Australian, do you find it interesting to read about the history of American popular music and culture?

      • Mabel Kwong says :

        Oh certainly. I’m not an expert on music history or anything, but it seems American popular and contemporary music through the ages – and today – is much more showy compared to the Australian music scene. Here in Australia, folk and old-school rock seem to the popular genres of music. Not sure if our music has an Eastern influence to it, as you mentioned with American music in your last essay. Good research.
