Luke Grammar in Songs (117* d) RE: Grammar in Songs 03 Jan 01

I think lots of songs aren't actually written so to speak. The reason I love folk songs so much is they seem so often to be more just "made". Not songwritters but more songwrights. I make songs myself. Sometimes I must get into the writing of them sometimes they just occur.

But then, I don't ever question the muse. If it happens to pop out straight thats nice. If not, that's also nice for it's own reasons, and there are many real good onesThe best of them is the musical sounds of words clacking their way into the air. Wrong sometimes can be very musical. And something said incorrectly might just bring ones ear to it even more than when spoken the other transparently correct way.

Also,, when in Rome ...... meaning 21st century earth, it's not always bad to speak in the language of the listener.

Some thoughts, Luke
