  1. What has this got to do with music?
  2. I hear you on Lilly Allen lyrics, it's just i want to punch her every time i see/hear her. That's not the fault of the lyrics, though. The "OOOOOH Ahhha" parts are simply poetic- they really move me in ways i've never felt before Now this is the sort of crud i'm talkin about. A song written about people who wrote songs. Like, please, i didn't say all songs of old were lyrical genius - just seem like a higher percentage were than now. There's some shockers from all years gone by. Its just now it takes less time to list the quality than it doess the shocker, in my mind. Where as many years in the past i think it was quicker to list the shockers - even in pop music.
  3. I hear what you're saying - that rhythmic patterns in poems can be difficult or different to musical patterns but mathematically, they're all the same shit. It'd be difficult to turn Kubla Kahn into a smash hit on the radio or the dance floor. Does that mean it can't be set to music? IMO, no it doesn't. It may not lend itself to more popular culture and taste, though. But then, the original poem never really went mainstream either. I guess it kinda furthers the question though. Has music killed lyrics? Are people trying to write lyrics that fit a good riff/hook and not starting with the lyric and adding music? Maybe that's the problem. Maybe the skills of old to be able to think of both at the same time have been washed away with a stream of white powder and a crystal glass filled with whiskey? Or is it just that the song writing process is no longer about a great rhythmic poem that lends itself to being set to music - it's all about 'the hook' and then fitting some comforting/confronting words to that? I like what you're saying about the way your poetry was adapted to some musical idea another person had. IMO, that'll lead to good lyrics. You're meter might not have conjured the right imagery in the mind of your singer and they're working with you to adapt the meter without changing the meaning. Sounds pretty cool to me. Like they got what you're trying to say but had a different idea on how to enhance that musically. Doesn't mean it's not poetry - it's just not your original poetry. If you'd been able to vocal it and add some instruments, maybe you could have turned your poem directly into a piece of music? But i always figured a band was more about being a team with the same goals and ideas but different skills. You throw an idea in that captures imgination and has meaning, another person adds their skill to the mix, then more until you've got a tune.
  4. Is that it?? Is emininem the great hope? I agree he's clever and ever so not gay, but good lyrics use to be prolific. Now it's crap at every turn. Good lyrics are poetry - that's always been the point IMO. They're emotive and add to the feel and meaning of a song. They contribute in harmony with the music. These days they seem more like a lead instrument adding some feel. A hook to appeal to human sensitivity and familiarity not some addition to the meaning of a song. Maybe that's the problem. Pop music doesn't aim to have appeal through meaning, it's designed to appeal through marketing. IMO, pop music from 20+ years ago was good music that had some appeal to the majority of a population, I guess a bit like traditional folk. But these days it's some mass produced tripe and it seems to be that that other music just feeds on this slack.
  5. I love Barry Manilow thread. Well, more precisely, I love clever lyrics. I don't care how hyper gay Barry is, his lyrics are fucking clever like so little music these days. Personally, I blame funk for killing clever lyrics and replacing them with slick bass lines and awesome drum grooves. But think they have someone to answer for after killing the lyracist. I mean, guys like Mike Paton and the ever awesome Ween persist in the face of adversity and (almost) pending obscurity, but who continues the dream??? The clever song writers of old are gone - no more prolific song writters like during the lounge/swing period. I cry for baby jesus. Opinions?
