Merritt Do you need to *believe* what you sing? (150* d) RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing? 11 Mar 03


For me, there has to be something in a song that I can invest my self in. Something that I can become a part of. This might be a:

~ beautiful melody
~ harmony on the chorus
~ story in the lyric
~ funky bass line that drives the song
~ a core value expressed..freedom, justice,..
~ childhood memory that resonates
~ something..

Just added Good Night, My Someone (from the Music Man) to my play list. Matters of taste can be disputed, but for me besides having a simple, almost elegant chord structure and a decent melody, this is one I sang as a lullaby to my kids many years ago. I can immerse myself in the song.
