Thread Name: I need a word or term: spoken song?
Subject: RE: I need a word or term: spoken song?
"Narrative Talk-Singing" from "Sophie Tucker"...Wikipedia...Lots of research to be done on Sophie Tucker...

Another descriptive might go like, "in the Sophie Tucker style", etc.

It seems that the technique in it's many varieties, from Burlesque, all the way up to today's Rap, has had names peculiar to the time & genre of the song...(Remember the "talking Blues style?")

You have lots of help from the search engines, not much point in re-inventing the wheel...
