I'd be interested to hear what you think my friends - can pop/rock music ever be poetry?
Oh, I definitely think that rock can be poetry. . . in the right hands (i.e. Ben Folds's hands).
I can't particularly think of any songs that remind me of Keats though, probably because they have poetry and personality of their own. Maybe if I thought about it for awhile I could think of something that might remind me of some part of Keats's life, but not so much his poetry.
Well, now I feel like I have to recommend an album!
I was talking about Impressionists earlier. This is one of my favorites:
Debussy and Ravel both only wrote one string quartet each, so they often get paired on recordings. These (especially the third movement of the Debussy) insipred me in my string quartet/flute piece that I wrote based on "Ode to a Nightingale" (which I'm still trying to compress so you can all hear it!). You might also be familiar with the second movement of the Ravel. . . one of the most colorful string works ever!
Oh, and thanks to Despondence for explaining how to post pictures from Amazon!
