Bruce, Neel, Phil and Janice spent most of an hour on the subject of song structures with 4 different examples. We talked about:
- the prologue verse (I Left my Heart in San Francisco)
- writing for musical theatre (My Funny Valentine)
- the connection between segment style and lyrical content (Band on the Run)
- Sloan’s song with its many sections and its Beatles influence (Fading into Obscurity)
All in all, a fun and informative show. Thanks for the tweets Tony!
