Listening to: Positively 4th Street – Bob Dylan

Germaine Greer: Morrissey fan!

(The stuff about Bob Dylan misses the point, and I’m sure she knows that – the legend is the point, and has been from the very beginning of his career, and, besides that, I think enough of his lyrics are brilliant that he’s earned it [but ultimately, you either love him or you don’t] – but I wish I hadn’t packed my copy of The Female Eunuch because I wanted to quote the part where she writes that the only non-sexist rock song [at time of writing, obviously] is the Troggs’ Wild Thing. [Germaine Greer is just brilliant enough to rest on her laurels, too.])
