A shiny necklace of perfect pop pearls is adorning the Afterword on a current thread. Said thread asks us about how important pop music and that wisest of scribes, The Venerable Tiggs, points out that it is at times of uncertainty and bewilderment like these, that we really need pop music.
I have nothing against Mozart, Brahms, Liszt or Wagner. But did Tristan and Isolde ever have to sign on? Do the Valkyrie fly down to their local chip pie for a fish supper?
Chuck Berry, Ray Davies, Jarvis Cocker, Half ManHalf Bisuit, and other great songwriters of rock and pop push the envelope about what you can sing about in a pop song.
This is a thread to honor them.
Your examples please of songs by these pioneers of the popular song.
Too graphic marinaters need not apply!
