Homophonic music has distinct melody and harmony.
Homophony is also used to refer to music with a dominant melody and rhythmically independent secondary accompaniment. Thus most popular music is homophonic. This type of music could be considered a monody, but this is generally applied to Italian song of the early 17th century.
