Word of the Week: Yarl


Definition (
To "yarl" is to sing melodramatically with a sort of barely suppressed letter "r" sound lurking beneath every other syllable.

Example: Creed's Scott Stapp: "Crahn yrou trake mree highar!!!!"


Today's Word of the Week was inspired by the un-007-like James Bond theme song sung by Chris Connell.

Now, there's bound ot be some debate about this, because apparently, according to Jack Endino, Chris Connell doesn't yarl.

Now, I'm not a music producer like Endino, so I can't offer my professional opinion, but on the James Bond song, Connell certainly sounds pretty constipated to me....
