Kayoukyoku is a general term for 'popular songs' that originated in the 1930s, but came into common usage after World War II. Although somewhat vague, it generally refers to the middle ground between 'pops' which have strong western characteristics and enka, which has strong Japanese characteristics. From the late 1960s until the 1980s, borrowing from all types of foreign musics, such as soul, disco etc. these styles blended together and the boundaries of kayoukyoku became more difficult to define.
