I have no problem describing popular music as art - in the same way that a work by Richard Hamilton or Roy Lichtenstein is clearly art.

Some of the Mac's songs are more disposable than others, but they still deal with human emotions in a way that many of us can (clearly) relate to. The lyrics are often rather trite and shallow, but the settings for those lyrics are frequently tremendously beautiful and inventive, which means they endure.
