Wordy Rappinghood 35+ Years Later
A clever song about words! Have some fun and listen to this gem from Tom Tom Club, harkening back to the early 1980s. I remember well spinning this vinyl during hot summer nights and trying to keep up with the lyrics as well as the funky beat. That phrase, “funky beat,” sounds so archaic but I’m pretty sure it’s still in use. Anyway, I like how the Wordy Rappinghood lyrics still resonate today, in our age of anything goes language, made up words, and 140-character snippets.
What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words
One of the words I learned in 2015 was pleonasm. Is this song a good example of pleonasm? I don’t think so.
Happy New Year to one and all!
