Is this sentence correct? ("it" is followed by a plural noun)
"It was songs of love that I would sing to then". This is taken from the lyrics of "Yesterday Once More" by the Carpenters.
Thanks in advnace.
1,In many songs, the lyrics occasionally become ungrammatical for the reason of music note intonation, the rhythm .. to get along with..Or sometimes, it's derived from the informal way of the composers.( or where he comes from).
2,It could be functioning as an subject as in :" It is those men who insulted her !"
or as an object in : " it was those ladies who( that) he insulted !"
The " IT" subject here is used to introduce and to emphasize the Noun or Noun phrase, I guess.
