Episodio IV – Let the Music Talk
This week I have chosen some songs that chat a little themselves. Addressing significant topics close to heart, they divulge stories and strong messages. Here is a selection of a few lyrical tunes that I have managed to fit into my hourly language and linguistics show.
I occasionally add some titbits of information for some disambiguation, but really sometimes, is it about less being more? Is there such thing as OTT in a tune? Is it about minimal mindful interference or is it occasionally beneficial to have Dante’s Guide chaperone us through the many realms of underground music?
