Writing Lyrics Vs. Writing..........

    Why do artists feel the need to randomly interject their name mid-song or sentence? It's not as if we don't know who’s singing? Their face is only plastered all over the CD cover, front and back. I'm forewarning you...when I become a published author do not be surprised if you see my name suddenly appear mid-sentence for no reason at all. No reason-Ann Nonymous-at all. Oops...It's already started! haha!


    How many songs can you think of that have the artist's name in the lyrics as I just described?

    The new up and coming British/Punjabi hip hop singer, Jay Sean does it...actually I think the featured artists in his USA albums do it for him!!!! haha

    Hip hop, rappers and I do recall the band Crazy Town mentioning their name a few times in their song.

    People referring to themselves in the third person is almost as annoying as the consistent use of bad spelling in published articles.
