Learning and Memorizing Songs

A month or so ago Street Musician posted some useful tips on learning the words to songs by heart. Street Musician's intense approach involves saturating your brain with the song for a short period so that the words and their structure are burned into your brain for ever.

The other day I came across an unusual way of looking at song structure and words. It uses a flow chart, more commonly associated with process descriptions in business and engineering. Joey Devilla posted a Hey Jude flowchart for the words to the famous Beatles song.



Who knows, maybe this way of looking at things could be just the thing to help songs stick in your brain... What do you think, could flow charts be the next big thing in song learning? Or maybe you have an alternative method that helps you memorize songs easily? Please leave a comment to share your experience...
