Some of you may wonder why I’ve been listening to a lot of pop music… ya know… stuff by Iggy Azalea, Janet Jackson, Rihanna, Adele, Amy Winehouse and stuff like that.
Basically, I listen to a lot of pop music lately ’cause I’m looking for more inspiration for my own songwriting. Not only that I enjoy listening to pop music more… I’m just looking for songwriting inspiration.
I want to learn how to write better melodies and learn how to write catchy songs so to do that you listen to some of the mainstream pop music that you hear all over these days. Pop music isn’t really all that bad if you think about it. Pop music will help you write better songs, in my opinion. It’s because they write catchy melodies.
If you want your original songs to become potential hit songs where it would catch a lot of listeners, you should listen to pop music for inspiration.
Listen to pop, R&B and even rap/hip hop. I just wanna make music that will hopefully everyone will like. That’s what listening to pop music can be good for is helping you write better songs. It could help write melodies that will never leave people’s heads and that’s why I’ve been listening to this stuff. For inspiration.
