Song Talk

Not long ago, I posed a question to readers: What is the Greatest Pop Song Ever Sung? (It had come up, for reasons I could explain, and do, in my column today.) This is a dumb question, in a way. At the same time, it is a fun question. And I have learned a lot.

For Part I of my relevant Impromptus, go here. There will be two parts. And there are a lot of songs packed into those columns. All the ones possible? No, no — but plenty, trust me.

P.S. If you feel like a little Mozart, I have a post at The New Criterion on Anthony McGill in the Clarinet Concerto. Here.
