Grammatically Correct Song Lyrics

I listen to the radio in my car every time I drive anywhere.

I’m finding, especially with modern music, that grammar doesn’t exist in the music world.

Now, I understand that a pleasing aural quality is necessary to make a successful song, and sometimes that means forgetting the rules. And let’s be honest, the rules are there for us to break.

But I was taught that you first must understand the rules before you can break them. And I’m not so sure all these artists understand the rules of grammar.

So I thought it fitting, seeing as I correct lyrics in my car, to start a regular weekly blog about grammatically correct song lyrics.

You can expect the first post soon, but they will normally be out on a Tuesday morning circa 8am Australian Eastern Standard Time.
