CONTEST: complex noun phrases in songs.

 Are you competitive? Do you like music? Here you have a new challenge. I am going to ask you to present songs (leave them in the comment box) with examples of complex noun phrases. We will vote in class those that you find most creative and complex. 

This is one of my examples.

Good evening! I'd never heard that Gaga's song before, and the lyrics are stunning. She's able to create an scene in your mind only using her voice, which is a thing that I use to like in emotional songs.

Also, the lyrics reminded me of a Taylor Swift song (kind of monothematic, I'm so sorry), which is called "Cornelia Street". I think it's pretty complex, so that one is my chosen one. :)

Dear students,
Thanks for taking part in this contest. Some of the examples we can find in the songs you have proposed are:

“weary brown eyes”
“another rainy Sunday afternoon”
“from sprinkle splashes to fireplace ashes” Not so much an example of a complex noun phrase but an excellent image with alliteration.
