“[Pop music] has seeped into our sensibilities in such a way that nothing that antedates it really sounds like music to us. … To dismiss the cultural effects of music as insignificant or merely a matter of taste, is like dismissing the study of sociology itself as merely a matter of taste.”

David Gordon, Why Johnny Can’t Sing Hymns

The whole book is readable, insightful, and often quotable.
