Top Ten Questions About Songwriting to Ask People


The Top Ten

1 What music artist inspires your lyrics?

Twenty One Pilots and NF have inspired me with their meanings, and Halsey has inspired me with her metaphors. - saturatedsunrise

2 What are some of your favorite lyrics you’ve written?

Well, not that any are close to average/average/above average, but I guess I’m kind of okay with “she stays strong as tears roll down her cheek, no luck for the broken, no training for the weak. And she stands up as her body fills with pain, stuck in the right state of mind.” - saturatedsunrise

3 What are some of your least favorite lyrics you’ve written?

Oh, all of them! But I guess my least favorite were written when I was 9: “I wanna watch T.V., I wanna watch T.V.. I wanna play Crossy Road, I wanna play Crossy. I wanna play Minecraft, I wanna play Minecraft.” - saturatedsunrise

4 What’s the title of your favorite song you’ve written?

I’ve only ever written one song that i’m kind of proud of, and that was called Hopefully Hopeless. Even though the chorus is only 4 sentences. Okay, never mind, it’s trash. - saturatedsunrise

5 What’s the title of your least favorite song you’ve written?

I Got It. It was the bad song I wrote when I was 9 about wanting to watch T.V. and play various video games. - saturatedsunrise

6 What song do you wish you would have written?

The song I talk about way too much. - saturatedsunrise

7 What genre of music do you write?

I guess it could be bad alternative pop. - saturatedsunrise

8 What are your favorite lyrics of all time?

Probably the whole second verse of Migraine. Just listen to it, and you’ll see why I like it so much, music wise and lyric wise. - saturatedsunrise

9 What are your favorite topics to write songs about?

Stuff that didn’t happen to me. I’ve only written one song about that, but it just made me really happy to write, because it was about stuff I want to happen. Writing songs about things that did happen is not a joyful experience for me, because I don’t write about very joyful experiences. - saturatedsunrise

10 What is your favorite part of writing songs?

Writing the pre chorus, because pre choruses are just so cool! - saturatedsunrise
