GUEST,MikeOfNorthumbria (sans cookie) Seeking songs with ABBACDCD rhyme (21) RE: Seeking songs with ABBACDCD rhyme 20 Aug 15


Hello McGrath of Harlow!

Please ignore the anonymous grouch above, and keep right on contributing.

Meanwhile, on the original subject of this thread (rhyming)- surely beauty is in the ear of the beholder? If it pleases enough people, a song will thrive, whatever its rhyme-scheme.

On the whole, complex rhyming structures appear to work better for comedy (as with W S Gilbert, or Tom Lehrer) while simple ones seem more compatible with the deeper feelings. But in matters of taste, there are no unbreakable rules. Whatever works, works.

Wassail!
