Sounds interesting!

I'll have to check that out. I don't much care for Martin's melodies, to the extent that I've been exposed to them. I think it could be valuable to understand their nature.

One of his main characteristics is the use of popular children’s songs.
I find that pretty easy to believe. I've always complained about the puerile, sing-songy quality of his songs.

Even though I don't like Martin's music much, I did think your observation about working melodic elements from the refrain/chorus melody into the verse arrangement is a tactic that can be used to good advantage.

Thanks for the article.
