Re: Not all lyrics are poems...

First, I like that you recognize that these are your opinions and not necessarilly what everyone has to judge based on. I think that's very important.

Second, I'm unclear. Are you saying that you don't consider something art unless it fulfills all of the three tests you mentioned or that it just has to pass one of them and any one of them is fine? Is something more artisitc if it passes 2 of them?

Re: Not all lyrics are poems...

I think that, to be "art," the work must incorporate all 3. Besides, how can someone create something totally original with great complexity, and have failed to evoke even the "wow" emotion? And it's equally hard to evoke emotion without the use of symbolism (complexity) or putting a new twist on things (originality). And if something is completely unoriginal, then it is a copy. Copies are never art, so... It's actually difficult to find any example that has only one of the prerequisites.
