about

"I will defend the absolute value of Mozart over Miley Cyrus, of course I will, but we should be wary of false dichotomies. You do not have to choose between one or the other. You can have both. The human cultural jungle should be as varied and plural as the Amazonian rainforest. We are all richer for biodiversity. We may decide that a puma is worth more to us than a caterpillar, but surely we can agree that the habitat is all the better for being able to sustain each..."

Stephen Fry, from 'The Fry Chronicles'

LYRICS

I'd been walking down a lonely road
almost all of my life
when I looked down and I saw you in the gutter... you said,
"Why not come down and play?
The way you're going ain't the only way...
I could show you a thing or two
I've got all day.
No need to be afraid"

So I heard you recycle the melodies, well
hey man don't we all?
Academics will worship in Latin
but in secret they revel in slang

I'll stop chasing after foie gras
give that spaghetti a taste...
Hey it may not be the finest dining
but might just taste better that way.
Guess I'll come down and play...
Give me that sweaty new vernacular and
I'll forget which direction to take
