Obama or McCain?

Are you following the elections? Are you committed to one or the other? If you are passionate about either one (or Hillary Clinton or John Edwards or any of the issues facing the USA), then you have the perfect subject for a song. The same thing applies if you are an avid follower of the Olympic games.

In fact, it applies to anything you are particularly interested in, whether it’s sports, politics, American Idol, TV/movies, Wii, poker, bingo, polka, Starbucks or ABBA. If you’re into it, you’re in a great position to write about it.

When you are passionate about a subject, it is much easier to write about. It is much easier to stick with it, follow through and finish the song. When you are passionate about the subject, you probably already know a great deal about it, in addition to your own opinions. All this is fodder for your song.

Combine two of your favorite things: songwriting and your #1 passion.
