10 Well Written Song Lyrics
As I end my series, I want to list examples of song lyrics that were well written and became classic favorites to many. This is by no means a top ten list. This is a list of at least 10 songs that I believe are well written lyrically. In reality, there are many—an endless array of songs, written well in every decade and genre. To capture them all, for me, would seem impossible. I am sure there are songs that you know of, that are written lyrically well.
The primary reasons why I believe these song lyrics were well written are:
- They are still powerful without music or performance added to it. In other words, their message is clearly conveyed, just as effective without accompaniments.
- Every written line, section, and arrangement makes sense and expresses the story and/or emotion it seeks to make.
This list is not in any particular order
