'The Songwriter's Rhyming Dictionary' is for all who know the frustration of seeing their inspiration come to nothing, simply because they just cannot find the right rhymes. No other rhyming dictionary has been put together so carefully, with the songwriter's needs so much in mind. But this dictionary is more than just a collection of rhyming words: it is a companion no songwriter can afford to be without. The introduction alone is full of generous tips and amusing anecdotes, and as Sammy Cahn reminices about his songs and how he came to find the right rhyme for every occasion, he gives the reader invaluable insights into the whole process of songwriting. Most important of all, he reveals the secret of that extra 'something' that made his songs the perennial favourites they remain - the fact all his rhymes are singable. I doesn't matter what the rhyme looks like on paper, he tells the reader, it is how it sounds when sung that counts. And so the 50,000 words contained in this dictionary are arranged phonetically, according to vowel sounds, rather than alphabetically. For anyone with a song in his heart but a block in his mind, there is no better guide than Sammy Cahn's 'Songwriter's Rhyming Dictionary'.
