9:30 Coffee Break: Spoken-Word Sections

Microphone (Staffan Vilcans - CC BY-SA 2.0)

Today's Coffee Break theme was suggested by Lisa, a listener from Edina, Minn. Lisa wrote to us to say she'd like to hear "songs where the singers stop and talk in the middle."

Sometimes a singer (or singers) will opt for spoken word to advance the story or the message of a song; many times it's in the bridge, occasionally it's in an intro and sometimes it's just a few spoken words sprinkled in the song. Using Lisa's suggestion, let's put together a playlist of tunes that use this technique.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that have a spoken-word section? Send us your requests.

And thank you, Lisa, for the suggestion!

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros "Home"
