fourzoas: (SD Velma book)
Something different for Booking Through Thursday today, and frankly, I could use this difference:

But, enough about books … Other things have words, too, right? Like … songs!

If you’re anything like me, there are songs that you love because of their lyrics; writers you admire because their songs have depth, meaning, or just a sheer playfulness that has nothing to do with the tunes.

So, today’s question?

* What songs … either specific songs, or songs in general by a specific group or writer … have words that you love?
* Why?
* And … do the tunes that go with the fantastic lyrics live up to them?

You don’t have to restrict yourself to modern songsters, either … anyone who wants to pick Gilbert & Sullivan, for example, is just fine with me. Lerner & Loewe? Steven Sondheim? Barenaked Ladies? Fountains of Wayne? The Beatles? Anyone at all…

So what are Zoas fond of? )

Put your ipod on shuffle and take the first line of the first 20 songs that come up and make a song

Music for my little ears )

That was fun.

I yanked both of these from The Park Bench (which is lovely!) because I want to remember them AND share them with you.

First, for fans of House and/or narrative frameworks, Every Episode of House Ever, a delightful graphic guide to writing your own script for this deliciously formulaic television show. I've got to find something similar for Law & Order--surely someone's done this, yeah?

Next, a little music for the nerdy girls and the folks who love them:

Ciao bella!
