Going for a song, yes that is what most of us have been doing for decades if not for centuries. Be it a lullaby, a rock song, a love song, a folk song, jazz, metal or country song – The list seems almost endless.

A song is a combination of melody and lyric. Or is it simply that? What about other ingredients of an original song? How about harmony, rhythm, tempo or the beat? Some songs have few or almost no words, but they are still songs – I think! With so many different kinds of song, it is hard to believe that they can all fall into the general category of simply being a song.

I intend to give some thought to this conundrum, and return to it regularly on our starsongs blog.

Meanwhile do keep – Going for a song!
