We show you how you can make an anthemic pop beat right here on BandLab’s free web Mix Editor.

Every now and then we come across a song that we just cannot resist singing along to. Pop music has always been catchy – songwriters have almost made writing a hit a down to a proven formula. No surprises there – the genre got its name from the word popular!

But what makes such tunes so addictive and memorable to a large audience? One of the simplest reasons is that our brains like easily recognizable patterns and rhythms. The easier they are to remember, the more engaging they are. That’s why the “na na na na” parts in songs like “Hey Jude” by the Beatles are just so damn catchy!
