Ana BS: How to do you memorize a song? (37) RE: BS: How to do you memorize a song? 07 Apr 00


I saturate myself with a new song when it "takes me". I play the song over and over 'til I'm one with the nuances of the melody; I sing it aloud and in my mind constantly then..write the words, read the words and feel the story..work out word patterns/rhymes.. learn first line melody perfect/first verse.. and yes like others sing 1st verse/then 1st & 2nd/then123rd etc..nerves can still have me forgetting a verse though at critical times. Then just when I've got it really sussed, I'm bored with it.. can't understand why I felt quite so passionate/obsessed..and then I hear another song..wow ..this is it.. I saturate myself (no not wet) and I'm off again!!! Ana
