I thought that some may like to reflect back and reacquaint themselves and others (newer members) with songs from JPF members that they thought were clever (lyric wise).

I'm not talking about production or other maters, just lyrics in finished songs that are clever...

For me, the cleverest has always been 'The One Hundred Letter Word' by 'Kurt Fortmeyer'. Long time member of JPF.

Sing along with it if you can...lol

Here is his video...enjoy and if you can add to the list, please do

God Bless to all

Roy

One of the most important principles of songwriting is to remember that a good song is a partnership of many different components, all working together to produce a satisfying musical experience.

In that respect, song components are either enhancing or compromising their combined effects.

I think you miss the point Cheyenne, maybe your not meant to be able to say it, that's why its clever...and to sing it time after time after time.

can you imagine a bar with loads of half drunk patrons trying to sing along...

I still have to look up 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' to remember the end..lol

Maybe It's my age.

God Bless to all

Roy

Well,
I assume there are hoards of them on JP Folks. You can read my own song, THE LOST CHAD SONG, on the lyrics form to see how clever it is. Actually it is a serious song but who knows? Write a Hit!

When I think of a "clever" lyric, I think of wordplay and interesting rhymes. So, I listened to the song and it was reaffirmed other people feel differently...
