When you discover a new song, do you read the lyrics? Do you go back and read the lyrics of an old song you thought you knew?
I was listening to music in the car the other day, and it got me thinking about the words within songs, and I thought, wouldn’t it be lovely to have a book of just lyrics from songs I love?
I’ve been writing down quotes I like in my soul homework journals for a few years now, so I decided to create a notebook just dedicated to quotes. I thought it’d be nice to look through when I’m having a bad day or need a quote to put in a card or blog post.
It made me think of song lyrics and how there are so many wonderful words that are written into songs and we don’t pay enough appreciation to the song writers.
The majority of the credit goes to the vocalists, who aren’t always the writers of those songs. I am considerably more impressed when they are both vocalists and songwriters.
I’d write a book dedicated to lovely lyrics that go unnoticed in songs we know and love. But I’m afraid that would be a copyright nightmare I wouldn’t dare tackle.
Do you pay attention to the lyrics of songs?
Do you have any favorite song lyrics?
