Add in the fact that you can use Spellsong to both Wordstrike (or the very powerful Weird Word at level 6) and cast a spell on the same turn AND can use Harmonic Spell to continue playing your other performances for nearly forever using cantrips easily overcomes the weapon and bardic knowledge abilities that you loose in return.
Ooo. I hadn't seen that feat yet. Thank you for pointing that out that's pretty awesome. If only there were swift action cantrips...
