Poems and Music

Lyrics are often poetry set to music. How else would those songs be so unforgettable!  The rhyme and rhythm increase a human's ability to remember the lyrics. In ancient times poetry was used as a method to communicate history of the people.

Poetry and music share an intimate connection. Both take some of the deepest and most intimate human emotions and distill them down to a few words.

In her TED Talk, Singing Old Poems to Life musician Natalie Merchant draws on her tremendous reserve as a creative and passionate artist and sings with from her heart.

I highly recommend the video. If the above does not work for you here is another link:
