Can music be objectively determined to be good or bad, or maybe better or worse?
Whatever music you individually like is a matter of personal taste - but can music be objectively determined to be good or bad? Consider; however much you might personally like it, wouldn't you agree that "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window" is not as significant, influential, or beautiful a piece of music to listen to as Eric Clapton's "Layla" - or that Irving Berlin's "Cheek to Cheek" is musically superior to "Do the Freddie" . . . again, you might like one song over another, but can one song be objectively determined to be less good than or one song be counted as better than another?
Yes it can, but it is impossible to prove it because it is a completely subjective assessment and there is no metric that can be used to measure how good a song is.
A lyric like "the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls" (Paul Simon) is vastly superior to "and through it all she offers me protection, a lot of love and affection" (Robbie Williams). I can't prove it but I know it to be true.
EDIT: Sorry just read the question again and noticed the word objectively. No its probably not possible to objectively say that one song is better than another. The technical difficulty of a song shouldn't necessarily mean its better and one look at the current top 20 songs tells you that sales units is a really bad measurement of how good a song is. I dont know, should be interesting to see if somebody comes up with a reasonable answer.
