The only Wings album I like is Band On The Run, and not by much.

Yet because I defend Paul as a songwriter, Urban has somehow gotten the idea that I'm a huge Wings fanboy who spends every waking hour listening to Mull of Kintyre. >_<

I used to debate with a fellow Beatlemaniac about which of Macca's solo albums is the best. His bid was for Band On The Run, and mine was for Ram.

Years passed, and we went our separate ways. One day, on the newsstand, I found a copy of Mojo magazine that had for a cover article Macca's Ram and the feature article was about why it's his best album. I would have killed to send it to him just to rile him, if I had known where he had drifted off to!

So a magazine writer agreeing with you is proof that you're right?

Rap is mainly poetry with a beat. It's not bad(Most of it, anyway.), it just doesn't entirely fit the description of music.

Rap appeals to listeners because of 1) the beat - this is more prevalent in more "modern" rap music 2) the artist's delivery/ flow / persona and how it prevails in the music 3) the lyrics - can be good or bad really, socially conscious or random ish thrown together

I fail to see how it isn't music, it may not be everyone's cup of tea considering the putrid quality of some rap out right now but it's still music.

A good deal of it doesn't have a melody. A good deal of it does though.

Ah, let me rephrase that. What I meant was large parts of rap songs don't have a melody. The only rap I've heard without a melody the whole way through is little kids trying to rap on the playground .

Wow, I never thought I'd hear a professionally done song without a melody.

I'm not under that impression. Are you?
