In this lecture we will begin to discuss how lyrics are created, and what to consider when you are writing.
What is lyric: Lyrics are the words to a song, poem, or verse. In most pop songs we follow an call section A the verse, which is a part of the song which tells the story. B is the chorus, the part of the song which reminds us what our main point of the song is. Section A and B rotate a lot, like a story does too! We tell some of the story, revisit the concept or idea, and then tell more of the story. This is how we maintain interest while also revisiting our main point of the story!
Let’s look at a current pop song of today:
When you look at the lyrics, see how the main chorus words keep repeating? This is called section B. Section A would be the first part that has words which more describe a scene, story, and part that emotes more of a long term story.
