Subject: RE: Conversation abt club and reading words-Dick Miles
Strange how the rules seem to be different for poetry when compared against song.
Les Barker has always had a book in his hand when I have seen him perform (not that he ever looked at it).
Poetry please on the Beeb always has people reading the words rather than reciting them.
I am convinced that some people can get just as much emotion into a song using words that they are reading as compared from words spoken from memory, but it is not every song and not every person.
