Words and Music is a collection of different perspectives on the interplay between words and music in opera librettos, Broadway musicals, pop, rock, blues and rap lyrics, and video game soundtracks. Topics include the links between sound and sense, challenges involved in translating song lyrics, the difference between adaptations and parodies, linguistic and cultural analyses of contemporary song lyrics, the censorship of protest songs, and teaching foreign languages using songs.
