And just which songs are those?
The ones a listener patiently waits for a lyric to color their mind’s eye, whisper their mind’s ear, or caress their mind’s touch…
You get the idea.
The type where it’s deadsville in the brainbox for them.
A grain of sand out on the Serengeti has more excitement with a hyena turd falling on them.
But, if you enjoy making your listener’s politely wait while they run off mentally creating shopping lists, Honey Do lists, and whatnot while you think they’re listening to every syllable? Go for it.
But, for those of you rare breeds who care, and are looking to dress up your lines and their minds, there is a very simple way to do it.
In fact, it’s so simple you can do it in your sleep, and often do.
Still, some songwriters go into song mode and go off to clever dick mode and miss the simplest thing they already know how to do.
Why is that?
I think they miss one important step. Maybe it’s two. I forget now. Anyway it’s in May’s TuneBooster soon to hit the news stand around here.
