This is going to be a short post…
An allusion is a reference to another piece of work or to some “commonly-known” subject, object or whatever.
Basically, it can add a bit of “real life” to the song. While a song can be personally, it might run into becoming too “imaginative” for listeners. Using allusions or references to outside works can help make it a bit more realistic… or even add a bit of nostalgia for the audience. Try it out!
