But, enough about books … Other things have words, too, right? Like … songs! If you’re anything like me, there are songs that you love because of their lyrics; writers you admire because their songs have depth, meaning, or just a sheer playfulness that has nothing to do with the tunes. So, today’s question? What songs … either specific songs, or songs in general by a specific group or writer … have words that you love? Why? And … do the tunes that go with the fantastic lyrics live up to them?
"What a Wonderful World". One of the best songs ever especially when sung by Louis Armstrong.
Folk groups and singers have some great songs. The Weepies and Joshua Radin have some wonderful lyrics. Iron & Wine as well.
