Episode Info

Episode Info: We featured songs on this episode that use the unique “talk singing” technique. For the most part, we agreed that talk-singing meant that the singers were using short notes without too much melodic range, but still consciously in the key of the song. We talked about: * how the ends of talk-singing musical lines work * the differences between rap and talk-singing * how talk-sung songs have interesting music beds * how you have a melody even when you’re speaking * how the late 70s and 80s saw a lot of talk-singing songs * our theme episode on Unconventional Singers Listen to the show Check out the songs  Read more »
