You're right. When the Classical music station plays the themes from Star Wars and Star Trek, a line has been crossed. OTH, back in the 1940s, actual classical music was stolen for movie scores, radio adventure show themes, and even commercials.

Come to think of it. Victory At Sea has also been played on the classical stations for some time now. Dying artforms? Or just crossovers?

Song lyrics are very different from poetry, just as poetry can rarely
function as song lyrics.  But many who would have been poets are probably
lyricists now, yes.

Most new classical music worth listening to comes in the form of movie
soundtracks.  Also true for jazz, come to think of it.
