Out of ideas?

Running out of song ideas? Time to go beyond love songs and heartbreak songs.

Look around and write a song about what’s up in your world. It might be something happening in your immediate world, i.e. your new puppy, crazy boss, job search, a funny thing your toddler said, etc. Or consider things in the news, like Syria, Iran, the Fukushima leak, the Nats, the Navy Yard shootings, the Hillary for President movement, the Tea Party, or texting while driving.

If you have strong opinions about any of these, that would make a good subject for your next song. If some of these complex world events are just confusing, write about that.

Try this: Close your eyes (don’t do this while driving). Spin around a time or two. Write a song about the first thing you see when you open your eyes. Maybe it’s an empty coffee cup, an iPhone, a person, the horizon, whatever. It could turn out to be a silly song or you may be able to make the object a metaphor for something more serious.

    Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover
    the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share
    the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let
    me know. Thanks a lot!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit,
    but other than that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read.
    I’ll certainly be back.
