Audience Reviews for Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story

There is a little known world, at least to me, about the song-poem industry. There are people who appearantly make a living turning peoples lyrics into songs for them.

This movie introduces us to some of the writers of these songs and their reactions to the interpretations of their words to music. Very funny to watch.
