Gordon Jackson Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion? (98* d) RE: Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion? 14 Sep 18


Someone needs to spell out the obvious: there is no objective 'best'; only subjective favourites.

My favourite songwriters are Richard Thompson, Steve Earle and Sandy Denny. None of them have been mentioned by anyone else, and why should they be - they are my favourites? Others prefer Ray Davies (who I think is brilliant), L&M, Gerry Rafferty and Freddie Mercury. Great, it can be interesting to see who others like, but it still doesn’t make any of them the best.

As for being remembered, who will tell us?
