I was speaking with a writer friend of mine about a style of speaking that we were looking at for lyrics. Does anyone know the term for when someone asks a question only to answer it themselves?

An example as said by one person...

"Do I want another hamburger? You know I do!"

"Am I going to have another hamburger? No I am not!"

The do this instead of just saying something like...

"I want another hamburger but I'm not going to have one."

What is this called? (I'm unable to answer it myself wink )

Personally, I call it annoying, but I'm fairly certain that's not the right term...only a description smile That being said, many people talk this way, so it may be useful in a song.

Just don't write like Yoda talks.

Way to many writers, like this, write.

Keep all those past tense participles and interrogative predicates in the correct order.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
