Are song lyrics poetry? "Poems have to do all their work on the page whereas lyrics are constantly inflected and modified – indeed interpreted – by the musical accompaniment and, crucially, by the voice. Some lyricists produce lyrics so in advance of the requirements of song that we respond to them in the same way we respond to poetry" (Harry Ricketts).

Dave Dobbyn, John Chong-Nee and Victoria Girling-Butcher discuss the art of song writing with Mike Chunn.

Presented in association with APRA and NZ Music Month.
