Song lyrics

OK, I am going to back off piracy today and flag up Jarvis Cocker’s comments on lyrics in The Telegraph. Just yesterday I was having a discussion with someone who contended that in French music lyrics are much more important (hence the chanson, and new chanson) and in Anglo-American music (with a few exceptions) the music/sound/rhythm was more important.

It is interesting that Jarvis, who lives in Paris (or did til recently?), follows the French view. Also the other great British lyric writers he mentions Lennon and Bowie are both song writers who spent time away from these shores (though Lennon later than when he wrote I Am the Walrus).

The moronic Noel Gallagher of course takes the low brow approach of “you could write any old nonsense and it didn’t matter”. Well if you get away with it and get rich and successful of course you can think that.
