The Semantics of the Popular Song
Contrasts the attitudes toward love developed by the lyrics of popular songs and the blues. Uses the concept of the idealization-frustration-despair disease to illustrate the orientation of the lyrics of most popular songs. Shows that the blues present a more realistic rather than magical treatment of love. Questions whether popular songs make attainment of emotional maturity more difficult. Featured guest is Clancy Hayes, jazz singer.
