Lyrics

September 23, 2009

A lot of song lyrics sound dumb when you read them printed out. It takes a really stellar songwriter to make lyrics that work just as well as a poem as out loud. As a case in point, compare:

Shine, by Edenbridge

Shine, it fired his imagination so far
And he gave rise to hope
Shine, this true ring of conviction will leave a scar
To the dancer on a rope
Shine, so where’s the difference between man and machine?
And who will draw the line?
Shine, the game is worth the candle, always been
May all ways then shine

Rihanna’s unmentionable umbrella song

(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

Shine is going to be my new favorite song for the next few weeks.
