Thread Name: Improving Lyrics?
Subject: RE: Improving Lyrics?
I think there is a danger of what the song looks like written vs. sung too. up until is harder to say than long before..which does not make it better or worse...the only way we can figure this out is with songs we are not familiar with and be presented with two or more variants and see which ones we like the most. Song lyrics go by really fast and our ears process them differently than spoken words or written words...

and if I could urge people to not change one thing it would be changing the gender back and forth...it hurts a song so much in my opinion..i will always change it back to the original if I can confirm anything.
