Europop refers to a style of pop music that first developed in today's form in Europe, throughout the late 1970s. Europop topped the charts throughout the 1980s and '90s. Some Europop stars came from France, Germany, Italy, Ireland and the Netherlands; but most were Swedish in origin. In the 1970s, such groups were primarily popular in continental countries, with the exception of the biggest Europop outfit ever, Swedish 4-piece ABBA, who achieved massive success in the UK, where they scored a phenomenal 19 top 10 singles and 9 chart-topping albums, and in NorthAmerica and UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, {{Roxette}} and {{Ace Of Base}} led Europop in [[{{Eagleland}} American]] and British mainstream audiences. By the 1990s, pop groups like the Music/SpiceGirls and the {{Backstreet Boys}} were strongly influenced by Europop. One of the main differences between American and European pop is that Europop is generally more dance and trance oriented. In central Europe ItaloDisco (a.k.a. '80s Eurodisco) and Euro House (a.k.a. '90s Eurodance) (later) are the predominant attempts by young musicians to have a hit record in and beyond the borders of their own country.
