Lyrics are meaningful and they often tell a powerful story, but sometimes caught aback by the catchy tune we often neglect to think about how the lyrics actually come across. Take Thriller for example by Michael Jackson, a chilling Halloween associated song if you go by the lyrics but it’s often a party classic due to the funky dance moves. Likewise, Copacabana, a well-known karaoke hit that stems generations, the lyrics however are quite dark.
Songs are lyrically skilled and if you stop and spend the time carefully listening to the words, you may be surprised at some of the epic stories they could be turned into. We decided to created book covers based on the nation’s favourite songs and when you see them, you’ll never be able to hear favourite tunes the same way again.
