Anonymous: Really random question and I'm not sure if you will know the answer, but do you know any good songs in iambic pentameter?
Had to think about this for a bit, but I guess some of Louis Armstrong’s would be? Billie Holiday’s St. Louis Blues definitely is. Elmore James It Hurts Me Too is, to an extent. Chet Baker’s But Not For Me has a few lines in iambic pentameter.
Overall, if you’re looking for songs like this stick to earlier jazz and blues.
