tossing it out: Classical Music Is The Best.

Blogger Arlee Bird proposes:

"Classical music as a genre is superior to all other forms of music."

And I like the way he puts it:

"Let me frame this argument another way. Which of the following are better if rated by quality: William Shakespeare or People magazine? A low budget film with bad acting or a respected film by a great director? McDonald's or a Wolfgang Puck restaurant? A painting by Rembrandt or a velvet elvis?"

And he appreciates the various good qualities of most types of music. In other words, he is not a classical music snob, yet he boldly states classical music's inherently superior qualities. How refreshing.
