"Rock is sex on parade." -Harvey Mansfield

"The lyrics of pop songs are so banal that if you show a spark of intelligence, they call you a poet. And if you say you're not a poet, then people think you're putting yourself down. But the people who call you a poet are the people who never read poetry. Like poetry was something defined by Bob Dylan. They never read, say. Wallace Stevens. That's poetry."

-Paul Simon
