My A to Z 2013

Song Lyrics - So much more than moons and Junes

Last year my A to Z Challenge was all about nostalgia and included singers and pop groups from the 1950s and 60s. A lot of you added your favourite songs in the comments so I thought, I love lyrics, you love songs. What better way to spend April than immersing ourselves in song lyrics?

I've always loved song lyrics, ever since I was a kid. The best lyrics are poetry set to music. The worst are just moons and Junes. So during this A to Z Challenge I’m going to choose snippets of what I hope will be ‘deep and meaningful’ lyrics and, with a bit of luck, you'll have a chat with me about them because... 

      It might be profound.  
            It could be thought provoking.  
                  It's going to be fun!

As always, I will be taking Saturday off as my rest day rather than Sunday. I will therefore be posting from Sunday to Friday throughout the month of April, starting this Monday. I also hope to be visiting lots of other A to Z participants, as well as my usual blogger friends. 

It’s going to be a busy month. Oh well, here goes…….

    1. That would have been a great idea, Val, but it's too late to change everything now so the answer to your question is no! *mutters to self about missing a good idea*
