WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Think about the chorus of a popular song. These are probably phrases and lines that are repeated fairly often through the whole song. If a computer needed to share those lyrics, it could compress the common parts so that it doesn't have to send the same information over and over.
It uses lyrics from Aloe Blacc’s “Wake Me Up” to show how commonly used words can be compressed.
