I dont think there is enough - 60s or later day - agree or disagree?
are an AMAZING baroque pop band, that's pretty much all I have to say on the subject...oh yes.
But i think you could argue that the intensely produced sheen of modern pop is fairly baroque. Possibly missing the undercurrent of chaos though...
some of the ace-est pop singles of the 60s that get overlooked thanks to Beatles/Kinks/Hendrix overload - it could be Bubblegum though, but I say baroque - eg. Eloise by Barry Ryan, Excerpt From A Teenage Opera by Keith West and The Days of Pearly Spencer by erm....some bloke - seriously over the top pop that you are happy in the knowlegde won't get covered by Shayne Childrens-Ward or whatever is name is from Pop Oidle
