Song Ideas: get inspired by these 18 ones

Even the most seasoned composers often find it challenging to how to write songs. After all, writing songs about particular experiences can only be done few times, and finding inspiration can be difficult enough on its own.

Any topic can be the subject of an excellent song. Simply look for some conflict, pleasure, or irony. We've selected some of the best song ideas to help you stay inspired when writing songs.

Songs about you

This song, which goes by the name "I am," crosses all musical genres, including rap, hip-hop, blues, religious, rock, etc. An "I am" song requires quite a lot of attitude, and they virtually always emphasise good qualities: “I’m a rockstar”, “I’m an hero”, “I’m the one who cares”, and so forth.

Songs about you

Songs about making love

Create a song that explores your relationship with sex. In the present moment and with regard to your relationship, how does it make you and your partner feel? Is there a clever word you can use to convey the point while remaining suitable for radio?

Songs about toxic relationship

Make a song about a relationship that is actually unhealthy. They have your love, but at what expense to you? Are you risking your physical safety, mental health, or sense of dignity?

Songs about being alone

Write a song on the benefits of being single. Perhaps you recently broke up with someone and aren't quite as upset as you anticipated. Now that you don't need anyone else to be happy, is being alone bittersweet or maybe completely sweet?

Songs about you being broken

Write a song where a belief of yours is completely demolished. Are you ever going to be able to trust? Having loved and lost, was it preferable to never having loved at all? Do you experience any sense of freedom now that you're free?

Blues songs

A blues song is the one to write if you're feeling particularly depressed or irritated about something. Blues is all about attitude, thus in a blues song, it's quite OK to be extremely angry about anything. The whole point is to explain to your audience why you're upset, when it started, what really annoys you about the situation, and how you intend to resolve it.

Songs of protest

You might not enjoy the blues genre and not all protest songs. However, you may still create a protest song about any topic in any genre. Let's face it, there are many issues worth protesting. You're better off concentrating on a tiny, local issue that affects you personally rather than a significant global issue.

Songs of protest

Songs about political conflict

Make a song on a political issue you find repulsive. Do you find it upsetting to send children to war? Why do the rules never seem to apply to the privileged? Does the system genuinely function as intended, or is there a problem?

Songs related to society

It is possible to view society as highly intelligent, which calls for complex language and music, or to hate and ridicule it like you might in a punk rock song. Any blues or protest song about society's corruptions and incredibly intricate divisions could be written.

Age-related or adolescent-related songs

Every person on Earth struggles with becoming older at some point in their lives. If you can't find irony, conflict, or joy in this topic, you should definitely give up creating songs. It's a multi-billion dollar industry where almost everyone aspires to look or age differently than they do. This is a really emotional problem that is extremely human.

Euphoria related songs

Make a song about pure happiness. Is it sexual, mental, or emotional? When you're having a good time, does time pass more slowly or faster? Do you want this moment to last forever?

Songs referencing alcohol or drugs

You don't have to write about becoming drunk or high; your song should be about an emotion and the tale around it. It's crucial to speak the truth without passing judgment.

Songs referencing alcohol or drugs

Discontent in the city - related songs

Make a song about how much you hate your hometown. Is your city large enough for you to feel lost in the bustle or tiny enough for everyone to see your mistakes? Do local landmarks bring to mind your ex or another traumatic event you had there? Are you unable to go, desperate to do so, or have you already left?

Songs about your rage

Make a song about how furious you are. How far are you willing to go to get justice? Is your anger centered at a specific individual, or has a whole system damaged you?

Songs about your dreams

As the safest place in the world, your bed should serve as a source of inspiration. You can think and conjure up imaginative worlds while you're in bed. Write dreams as songs if you're fortunate enough to experience them, since they are a direct link to your emotional memory and how it is attempting to make sense of the world.

Songs about your dreams

Songs that speak about time

Days, weeks, months, seasons, years, decades, seconds, moments, minutes, mornings, afternoons, evenings, and hours. All of these can be used to structure your music because they offer a universally understood background.

Money-related Songs

Many successful songs and thought-provoking songs about money have been written. That's because the topic is so sensitive. Make up a song about living the high life. How does it feel to enjoy the finest things in life? Where do you live? What do you eat? What kind of vehicle you drive?

Money-related Songs

Work-related songs

The impact of Black African slave labor on American music is well documented. A song or chant can frequently prevent your spirits from plummeting into the depths, as anyone who has been made to perform difficult manual labor for extended periods of time can testify.

Conclusion

We hope you found this list useful. Which concept grabs your attention? What kinds of subjects do you like to write about? These are just a few examples of the situations you might encounter on a daily basis. Get inspired by everything you encounter, and you'll be able to know when it's time to pick up a pen and write down some thoughts.
