The reality, I have come to believe, is that the people who “know” about the consumer preferences of the “rest of us” don’t really know that much anymore. In this context, those of us who like songs like them in an accessible format, without worry about the “traditions” the would be “taste evaluators” want to impose.

In this time of general upheaval, all these ways of looking at music are merely more stegosaurus bones, being buried.
