A typicallevenslied has catchy, simplerhythmsandmelodies, withmany pop and folk tunes, and is always built up in coupletsandrefrains.
  • Music critics are oftencritical of the levenslied, judging the simpleandcatchychorussesand tunes as a lack of creativity. For thisreason, the word "smartlap" ("sorrowscrap" meaning "sentimental song") is oftenusedforthismusicstyle. Almostanysentimental song is referredto as a smartlap in Dutch.
