King of the Cadences
Musical phrases end in cadences
As language is made up of sentences
Punctuated, to give meaning
Assembled to convey a feeling
The ends of phrases most of all
Have favourite flavours of how they fall
To start the list right at the top
The Perfect cadence - full stop
Done is done
There's no more
Shut that door
Another cadence that seems like the end
But not quite as final, I would contend
The "Plagal" - known as the Amen
From when hymns would end with a communal "amen"
Just not so sure
As the one before
But the King of all the cadences
Sometimes though, you need a cadence like a comma
A breath that is baited for more
It doesn't matter what chord you come from
Mostly 1, 2 6 or 4
As long as you end on chord 5
It will give it a forward drive
The Imperfect cadence is what we have here
There's more to follow, wait and hear
What about when you need a question mark?
Its like ending a sentence with "uptalk"
The Interrupted cadence, sometimes called Deceptive
Cos it deviates from what you expected
What comes next?
But we all know which cadence is the best
Listen to all tracks on Me and Them Others
