EMP Pop Conference #2

Filed under: music — alimarcus @ 10:46 am

I missed Stephin Merritt's keynote speech but an offhand comment made by Robert Christgau made me smile.  The statement wasn't even a full sentence, but it was in reaction to something Merritt had said, something that Christgau called "Stephin Merritt's absurd contention that there's no such thing as a happy song."

Articulate and right on the money.
