The Problem Identified.

I was surfing channels ten minutes ago, and in between the flicks, the problem with music appeared, crystallizing in a moment of technicolour clarity. It wasn't that I didn't know what the problem (well, problems) were, it was just that I lacked a soundbite, something I could quote to people without launching into a long, and really, unless you're on my wave length, boring. But I have one now, and it's really quite a fine quote, just superb, and I'm going to share it.

This is it:

The MTV presenter, standing next to the freshly minted Pop Icon, asks, "What do you want more: Your driver's license, or your album to go platinum?"

I agree. I don't think the cream rises anymore, do you? It just seems to sink and then we get left with the vapid skim milk at the top.
