Hey guys, I'm writing an essay to answer the question, "How do musicians use language to get their points across in their songs?" I didn't want to get my hopes up, but I was hoping I could get a response from the Theocracy guys. I appreciate anything you guys have. So far, I've only got three devices that musicians use to get their meaning across. - Allegory, I think this speaks for itself. - Repetition, repeating the verse or chorus will often help in getting the lyrics stuck in someone's head. It will also "hammer" the point in, just like teachers in school. Will repeat things so that the students fully understand. - The Music itself is often what cause people listen to guys scream about how crappy relationships are. Without music, no one would pay attention to him. Thanks.
