In the following sentence:

"These beginning songs are not my favorite part of the album, but I feel that each play an important role in the album."

Would "play" have to be "plays." I know that each is a singular pronoun, but are we referring to the songs or to each? Does that make sense? I say "plays."

Anyone know?

Thanks.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Actually the subject is each (each ONE) and that's the reason for "plays."
