Stories told through music is just an inferior form of art, seriously.
You probably don't like opera then, huh.

Or Bob Dylan or Nick Cave or John Darnielle or etc etc etc

That's odd... the song of that name (I haven't seen the musical) is possibly my least favourite song ever. We sang it at choir and it wasn't much fun.

Edit: I may have seen Andrew Lloyd Webber in Manchester two weeks ago. Does that make me cool?

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

Godspell = possibly the worst musical ever created. Hitler in Spring time would be worse if it were real, but it's not.

Except that those artists ROCK, and write great music, whereas most musical music is formulaic, superficial shit.

Clearly you've never heard Laibach's version of "Jesus Christ Superstar".

Hey, I love Dylan too, but if you're gonna complain about formulaic music, little Bobby Zimmerman's one of the worst offenders.
