I agree with both of you. I especially agree with you in what you have to say about pop music. Listening to pop music may help you understand commonly used phrases and also help with pronuciation. I always advise
people who want to learn to listen to boleros which are usually clearly sung in well accented Spanish. Boleros make use of many common expressions. They will help you learn the rhythm of the language which will aid in your communication skills. Most bolero songs are from the 1950's, but contemporary artists still sing them. Edith Salazar is a contemporary composer and singer of boleros. Listen to her! She's on youtube. She has a wonderful disc available which also includes poetry.
