What's the online equivalent of song writing?
To my mind it's those adword ads or the titles of articles. In a few words you have to bring the reader into to what you want to share with them.
Song writing is an art form and I was reminded of that this week when I heard a Nat King Cole version of Stardust. It was played to celebrate the anniversary of his death on Monday. But as much as celebrating his consummate skill as a singer, it celebrated the consummate skill of Hoagy Carmichael.
One of my presents this last Christmas was a Hoagy Carmichael cd. As a writer I marvel everytime I hear a song that captures my heart in under a couple of minutes. Magic!. Whether it's Schubert or Carmichael, The Beatles or Gershwin, these storytellers have it in spades.
