Mikey Cahill on Waxing Lyrical: The Good, The Bad and The Gaga
Are modern lyrics dropping the ball? Can we blame the iPod generation’s short attention cocker spaniels for a lack of intelligence in pop or does this just make songwriters try harder to be heard? What would Dylan think if he was still alive? Oh wait, he is…walking around using a Zimmerman frame. Culture Consultant Mikey Cahill (Hit Magazine, Time Out Melbourne) works out whether 2012 is also the apocalypse for lyrical genius.
Mikey Cahill writes the Rock City column for News Ltd.
He reviews and writes about music for Hit, jmag and Inpress. He has just been added as a Judge for the Australian Music Prize 2010.
