None of the suggestions will make me change my mind about what I regard as anti-music (and it's specifically the rapping I object to, more than 'hip-hop' in general).
I think what I may have been hoping for in raising this subject was that some other grumpy old voices might have been raised to support me. Am I really the only one on this forum with good taste?
Well, Roger, I can't argue about who would rather think about Brigitte Bardot than rap, but I will say that I find your "good taste" rather narrow, the way you put it rather confrontational, and that the concept of what constitutes music has, I think, expanded since you formed your general opinion about such things as rap as "anti-music." Actually, I suspect the concept of what constitutes music changed long before you formed your opinion. But all that is only my opinion, personal as it is, and like a certain part of the anatomy, not only does everyone have one but everyone is entitled to one.
