Vulgar Gaiety

I was reading some history by Jacques Barzun and ran across this phrase used to describe the music of Offenbach.

The first thing that popped into my mind was wow, if you call Offenbach "vulgar gaiety" what the heck are you going to call this latest from Beyonce:

Great phrase, "vulgar gaiety" and so appropriate to so much recent music. Heh!
