OK, three posts in one day is excessive. I’m sorry. But listening to Welcome to the Jungle (after writing the Slim Fast post), I was reminded for the second time today of something I relally like.
Sometimes in a song there is a word, one word that really stands out. It usually has to do with how that word fits in to the rhythm of the particular phrase. Two examples stuck out today, and I think it might have to do with the fact that they are both long words:
From Welcome to the Jungle by Guns ‘n’ Roses
If you got a hunger for what you see
You take it eventually
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me
From The Dark of the Matinee by Franz Ferdinand
I time every journey to bump into you, accidentally
I charm you and tell you of the boys I hate
All the girls I hate
All the words I hate…
Now I’m wondering if the fact that these are both adverbs has anything to do with it.
