Today's Lesson
MELODY / LYRICS   メロディ/歌詞


  • A melody is the series of musical notes in a song. It's also the most important series of musical notes in a longer or more complex (= not simple) piece of music; for example, in music for orchestra or in a song for two or more singers.

    Lyrics are the words of a song.
  • melody とは、歌における一連の音符のことです。例えば、オーケストラや、二人以上の歌手が歌う歌など、長い曲や、より複雑な作品においては、一連の音符の中で、いちばん大切な部分をさすこともあります。

    lyrics とは、歌の言葉の部分、つまり、歌詞のことです。
