it is stupid but dont try to write something just write what ever you are feeling. music that is generally written to be sad when the writer knows nothing about being sad will suck. so i would say write a song the goes with your type of personality. if youre happy with nothing going on in your life try writing something more free spirited

^ I agree.. ^-^
Songs are supposed to be expressions of your emotions and what you truly feel about what's happening in your situation/community/the world's..

Exactly. Nickelback is one band who does this in many of their songs.

when you typed write did you mean actual music as in composing or lyrics for a song?

I can't play an instrument yet so i have only done some song writing...

don't "try to write a song" just get caught up in thoughts and writing things down and put them together...it's confusing at times but after a while you might end up with something nice


and everyone's different too

it comes from inspiration, and you really need to FEEL whatever the emotion is. use dramatic words. Like Shakira, her lyrics are very personal. and creativity is part of it.

I write lyrics and make melody... I'd usually draw from other inspirations to make my own

There's no real tips to writing it lol Just look at some of the songs we look as "classics" and you'll see that most people over analyze things, so as long as you have something vague or certain allusions, people will say its DEEP

Write the music without lyrics. Then if you feel it needs lyrics you know its not a good song.
