I can’t take any credit for discovering this video — I first saw it on Facebook, where it was shared earlier this week by my music therapist friends Lisa, Michelle, and Becky (among others, I’m sure).
I’m not sure about you, but I knew every one of those songs from the get-go. Just goes to prove that a song doesn’t have to have amazingly powerful lyrics to make it memorable or enjoyable.
Then again, I already knew that…most of the songs I write have lyrics meant for children under the age of 10, yet that doesn’t stop them from getting stuck in my head for days on end!
My favorite song featuring lyrics that aren’t lyrics would have to be Third Eye Blind’s “Semi-Charmed Life” (at the 2:00 mark in the video), because it had sentimental value back in high school :) What’s yours?
