It's not even controversial, he wrote it in 1992, it could have easily come out in the 50s at Darmstadt or something. Did they say something about him trying to redefine stuff?
I have no idea why they teach the music they do. If you want to get students into contemporary music, you don't throw them into stuff like Barry and Deane, not even contemporary music fans like Barry and Deane

I swear, put me in charge of the leaving cert, I'll make you a ****in' unreal syllabus of tunes

You and me both mate. Its so backwards in so many ways, but then again we have to take into accpunt the great knowledge that the 89 year old nuns who have been teaching music for 45 years, and obviously they know more than us !

Gesticulate with your hands while singing, much more interesting that a singer clinging onto the mic stand like it's a life raft, and bring water.

Entire sections of the exams devoted to Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5.
