Beyond Assonance: Rhyme Attempts in Popular Music 1

16 Jul 2014

Below are five of my favorite rhyme attempts in popular music. I did my best to list instances that give me the impression that the artist is sincerely and unambiguously attempting to make two words rhyme.

For instance, I didn’t include Danzig’s “Not of this World” because I get the feeling he’s truly just pairing “alive” with “lies” due to their matching vowel sounds. You be the judge.

But, so, may I present to you:

Some of My Favorite Rhyme Attempts in Popular Music (Note: Some of these songs contain, like, adult language/themes)

Song: Mind Games
Artist: John Lennon
Attempt: Sure/Grow (Go)
