Re: Pretentious music??
But really, can music be pretentious? Or is that strictly a human quality?
After all, pretentious people think they are more important than they are, right? I suppose you could write songs that overstate their own importance.
Here, I'll start.
"The most important song ever written"
This is the most important song ever written
As soon as I wrote it, I was forever smitten
And when the words of this song are heard by the human race
It will absolutely transport them to a far better place.
Does that qualify as a pretentious lyric?
