Many bands and solo singer/songwriters like to write their lyrics on different things nowadays. Many like to write their lyrics on a word processor on their computers and they like to print them out. Some even like to use Ipads, tablets or even Iphones to write lyrics on.
With me? I still like to write lyrics on regular notebook paper. Honestly, I haven’t been writing new lyrics in a long while but I’m planning on getting back into it right away. I just bought a new 5 subject notebook for it. I like to write lyrics on notebooks with a regular pen ’cause it’s easier and quicker to get words on paper. Plus, I like to keep it old school. In the old days before all this technology, they had to use notebooks or typewriting paper
I need to get back into lyric writing. Some always believe it’s important to write lyrics after the music but you don’t always have to do it that way. I’ve always liked to write the lyrics before the music. Once I write the music for the song then I’ll change the lyrics around some for it to fit. There’s no rules in songwriting, it’s your choice whether you want to write lyrics first or after the music. I prefer first. Many bands and songwriters has been writing lyrics first nowadays anyways.
Like I said, I vow to keep politics out of my music from now on. I’ll write about other things. Write whatever comes to my mind. Writing song lyrics is awesome and I need to get back into it again. Itching to get new stuff out pretty badly.
