Booking Through Thursday

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? You don’t have to restrict yourself to modern songsters, either … anyone who wants to pick Gilbert & Sullivan, for example, is just fine with me. Lerner & Loewe? Steven Sondheim? Barenaked Ladies? Fountains of Wayne? The Beatles? Anyone at all…

I’ve always been a fan of the Beatles. Listen to the words. James Taylor. My son gave me a “best of” James Taylor CD at Christmas – one of my favorite gifts! I love what Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young did about the Vietnam War – their songs reflected the times. Songs that move me, they’re the best ones of all.
