Random information on the term “Lyrical”:

Lyrics are words that make up a song usually consisting of verses and choruses. The writer of lyrics is a lyricist. The words to an extended musical composition such as an opera are, however, usually known as a “libretto” and their writer, as a “librettist”. The meaning of lyrics can either be explicit or implicit. Some lyrics are abstract, almost unintelligible, and, in such cases, their explication emphasizes form, articulation, meter, and symmetry of expression. Rappers can also create lyrics (often with a variation of rhyming words) that are meant to be spoken rhythmically rather than sung.

“Lyric” derives via Latin lyricus from the Greek λυρικός (lyrikós), the adjectival form of lyre. It first appeared in English in the mid-16th century in reference, to the Earl of Surrey’s translations of Petrarch and to his own sonnets. Greek lyric poetry had been defined by the manner in which it was sung accompanied by the lyre or cithara, as opposed to the chanted formal epics or the more passionate elegies accompanied by the flute. The personal nature of many of the verses of the Nine Lyric Poets led to the present sense of “lyric poetry” but the original Greek sense—words set to music—eventually led to its use as “lyrics”, first attested in Stainer and Barrett’s 1876 Dictionary of Musical Terms. Stainer and Barrett used the word as a singular substantive: “Lyric, poetry or blank verse intended to be set to music and sung”. By the 1930s, the present use of the plurale tantum “lyrics” had begun; it has been standard since the 1950s. The singular form “lyric” still appears; its present use, however, is to refer to a specific phrase within a song’s lyrics.
