60 second lecture on imagery and vowel sounds

Imagery in songs is one of the only ways that we can get across emotion in a song. If you want someone to feel how you feel in a song make them smell taste hear touch and see it. Vowel sounds hold the magic of emotion because they lend themselves to holding emotional resonance When writing certain songs for King Midas Sound we paid special attention to the imagery and the vowel sounds. For example in the song Lost; Like the sand holds the sea......Watch the stars kiss the sky .......when your tears fell like rain . So next time you're writing and emotional song think about the combination of vowel sounds and imagery.
