Speech turned Song

Created by Sciera on 20 Sep 2018 | Last edited by Sciera on 19 Jan 2019

Dialogues and similar in meter and/or melody, songs with switches in perspective/speaker, or containing direct speech.
In other words, songs (almost) entirely consisting of (sung/rapped) dialogue.

Can't decide whether to put this into this or the sibling collection xD
I'll put it here as it's the whole song made like that.

Thanks - not that much talking in there, though, I prefer adding it to the dialogues collection instead.

I thought dialogues were included here, "Parole, parole" and "Fairytale of New York" are dialogues like this, too...

I don't understand this list. Can we add monologues/dialogues? Or they supposed to be like poems?

Here are definitions:

"Frame Stories and Dialogues" - it's about songs that contain some frame story (which often is a dialogue) or interrupted/introduced/ending with some (often but not necessarily spoken) dialogue or spoken words of any kind.

"Speech turned Song" - it's about songs (almost) entirely consisting of (sung/rapped) dialogue.

So, "Parole, parole" and "Fairytale of New York" are almost entirely dialogues, and not songs including short dialogues, so they fit better into the latter.
