Joan What songs do you 'see'? (79* d) RE: What songs do you 'see'? 06 Jan 00


I see them all...a little mental movie of the action in the song. Some, of course, have words that stimulate really clear pictures in themselves:

"O'er his white bones the birds will fly, the wild deer run, the foxes cry." (Twa Corbies)

"Braken is gold in the sun." (Come by the Hills)

I find if I'm really focused on the pictures, the listeners can see them too--no hokey dramatizing--just making the song vivid and real for me and subconsciously transferring that to the audience.
