Friday 3rd March How to say the thing you're trying to get across in a way that doesn't sound either too clever, or not clever enough; how to express the inexpressible using tools that were chiefly designed to give directions.

Or to put it another way, the main business of songwriters is to try and capture the lightning of emotional states in a musical bottle and thankfully, that sort of thing doesn't require much in the way of explanation.

While it's been interpreted in all sorts of ways, largely from the effect it had on listeners, that cry is actually a vocal approximation of a drum break, making Little Richard not just a rock 'n' roll pioneer, but one of the earliest beatboxers on record too.

La La La is a song about the expressive limitations of words. But of course music is another way to keep people out of your face, so as a nod to the modern world, Naughty Boy 's lyric has him putting in the earbuds and "turning up the volume" to block out any further interaction, while continuing to sing out loud.
