Read It In Books

What better way to wear your learning on your sleeve than by dropping an author or two into your lyrics? Let's start a library:

Walt Whitman - Walt Whitman's Niece by Billy Bragg and Wilco

Norman Mailer - Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken- Lloyd Cole & The Commotions

Shakespeare (and Virginia Woolf) - Shakespeare's Sister - The Smiths (OK, not in the lyrics, but you get the idea)

Wilde, Keats and Yeats - Cemetary Gates - The Smiths

Every cultural icon you can think of - Endless Art - A House

Every Irish author you can think of - Dance Stance - Dexy's Midnight Runners

and of course, regular contender for worst lyric ever:

Nabokov - Don't Stand So Close to Me - The Police
