TOP POPS was a British pop music newspaper that was published in the late 1960s and early 1970s. TOP POPS was founded initially as a three-weekly publication by Woodrow Wyatt in May 1967, with Marcus Davidson acting as editor. Under Davidson's successor Colin Bostock-Smith, TOP POPS moved to Fleet Street and became fortnightly in November 1967, then weekly in June 1968. On 20 September 1969 the paper was rebranded TOP POPS & MUSIC NOW under the then editor John Halsall and subsequently became MUSIC NOW after a staff buyout in March 1970, when former RECORD MIRROR editor Jim Watson took over.
