Rap / hip hop evolved in neighborhoods where music education had been removed in curricula, so it arose as a natural expresison of rhythm and poetry. By every definition of music, it is indeeed both absolutely music and a legitimate cultural art form. (I'm a published songwriter and musician)  You may not like it, but that's simply subjectivity at play.

"Sound of Silence" -- Simon and Garfunkel

 

The cover by Disturbed is so honorable, no one else imho could do it justice...

I'd retire all Rap, although I don't consider it music.  I realize "to each his own" but I feel sorry for those who consider that music and who haven't been exposed to the real thing.

It was heavily criticized for making light of mental illness, and many stations quit playing it for that reason.

Although I love Boston and feel like a traitor, I have to nominate Sweet Caroline sung by Neil Diamond and anyone else. I never could stand that song and during baseball season it is ubiquitous in Boston. Hate. That. Song.

Oh, my, yes. And every other Bobby Goldsboro song. Remember (gag) "See the Funny Little Clown" and "Watching Scotty Grow"?

an1532 -- the Bobby Goldsboro song was "Honey." I agree, that song should heve been killed before it was written.
