 ==== ====GETV Network; Gospels Finest Musichttp://www.youtube.com/GETVNETWORK ==== ====The country song lyrics that create history are the ones that emerge straight from the heart, forthey successfully touch the listeners' mind and soul. It is not easy to reach out to people and keeptheir attention or senses engrossed through songs. In order to do that the music must beextraordinarily good and the lyrics, perfect. It has been comparatively simpler for country songs toleave a lasting mark on the public through the sheer magic they weave. Their smooth, narrativequality, fascinating sentimentality, soft, flowing music, restorative verve and punctilious spirit addup to place country song lyrics on a higher pedestal than others. A fine blend of traditional and contemporary music styles, country song lyrics have their roots inthe southern United States. There is distinctiveness that does not require writing them anyspecialized skill. Composing the lyrics is an art that can be mastered by any good story teller whowill eventually do even better if he bears a few tips in mind: Â· There is a haunting beauty about such lyrics. The reason is quite obvious. Every country songis basically a heart stirring story set to music using the very fundamental chords of a guitar, apiano or even the age-old banjo! The absence of jarring drum beats or other noisyaccompaniments does much for the country song lyrics. Â· The conflating of irenic tone and the modest rendering are furthered by easy-to-understandlanguage. Words are from common every-day-use vocabulary that need no conscientious effortsto grasp, remember or sung along. By varying the timbre the writer can spell-bind the audience. Â· A little bit of imagination, ability to empathize, practice and perseverance is enough for thewriter of country song lyrics to etch out pieces of pure delight. A country song on the anvil must bestructured well. Generally the verses are interspersed with 'catchy' chorus having often repeatedhooks to make them even more endearing. Â· Probably the most crucial aspect is the selection of the subject of the lyric. Choose just onemain topic per song and lay it bare through few appropriate words that convey a lot of meaning.Looking down the annals of history, we can clearly see the most widely used topics for the bestloved country song lyric were the ones that dealt with human emotions or experience. The centralidea is to connect with the listeners emotionally. Some of the most sung about themes include: Morose - death, divorce, separation, betrayal, down-in-the-dumps mood, night, tears, failure, snowand cold, painJoyous - bells, marriage, friends, birth, dance, going gallivanting, cowboys, warmth, parents, itemsof foodRomantic - spouse, girl/boy friend, love, moon, wine, attire, candlelight, relationships, heartNature - flora and fauna, river, sky, sun, stars, fire, hillside, lake, barn, water
