Friedrich Nietzsche

“Let us consider . . . the kind of melodies and songs in which the most vigorous, unspoiled and true-hearted classes of the population find genuine delight . . . [Is] it not the worst music at present produced that is loved and, one might say, cherished? He who speaks of deeper needs and unsatisfied yearnings for art among the people, as it is, is a crank or a fraud. Be honest!”

Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human
