Diego Luna / Gustavo Santaolalla "Book of Life, The" soundtrack. I Love You Too Much is a song from The Book of Life (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).

Courtesy Photo As I sat at my desk, fingers poised above the computer keyboard and staring at a blank word processing document with an equally blank mind, I felt a light brush against my shoulder. Hooray, the muse! Joy, hope and gratitude flowed through me, and my spirits soared to stratospheric heights. And then, I heard the sound of running feet. This mom-as-napkin incident capped off an especially challenging three days of parenting.
Maybe integrated into the chorus. Often, it is worth the effort to first invent a melody from a chord or string for guitar sequence around which your song will be focused. Song writing for the popular vote requires a 'hook' as it is known. The hook may be simply a melodic structure, but is perhaps preferably a mix of the melody coupled with a clever line of words.
For instance, in the well known 'Danny Boy' or 'Derry Air' as it is sometimes called, the 'hook' is found where the melody appears to try to surge forward into the chorus and the words "But come ye back" accompany that surge in chord progression.
The reverse process, putting music to words, is a lot more difficult and is also less successful in most formats.
Developing a melody after writing lyrics allows you to form the basic rhythmic structure from the syllables of the words, adding expanding and altering to develop interesting melodic movement. Knowing the tone of a particular line or section also allows you to better able match the mood musically for more consistent feeling.
Plenty of people find these advantages helpful and it is by no means incorrect or more difficult writing in this fashion. Song writing is a process unique to everyone, do what works best for you. But there are certain cases where putting music to words is a better option Popular Song forms[ edit ] Popular music has several forms that are commonly used. These usually consist of four 8-bar phrases, making up the typical 32 bar form.
Typically, this entire bar is a chorus. A-A1-B-A ternary is the most famous. The hook is typically in A, which allows it to be repeated, setting the hook in the listener's mind. The hook is a memorable, catchy part of the song, and may consist of one or more of the following: the title, a musical phrase, a riff, or a production effect. In section A1 the song develops usually by adding new instruments or increasing energy level in some other way.
The B section, often referred to as the bridge, is a musical and usually lyrical contrast. The 2nd half, acting as repetition , have a slight difference either melodically, harmonically, or both. Repetition may or may not have variations. A-B-C-D: Each phrase provides a variation with new melodic material. This is rarer since it requires more attention from the listener and fewer opportunities to bring home the hook through its repetition.
Some people are born skilled writers. It comes to them like breathing. Others want to write so bad it's killing them, but they can't come up with anything that moves people.
Most of us are somewhere in between. Those naturally gifted wouldn't be here most likely, for the "ungifted", you are actually just unpracticed. Experience is more useful than being gifted, you will learn all the wrong ways of doing things which will actually give you a better understanding of the craft rather than being "lucky" and making something good but with no idea of why and how you might expand from there.
Absolute Pitch. Of course it is a helpful tool but is not necessary. More commonly called "Perfect Pitch", and is the ability to distinguish and identify the pitch, note, or chord playing by name. This is a gift you are born with or without. An equally useful and similar tool is "Relative Pitch", the ability to distinguish and identify intervals and chord movement from a known starting pitch. Again, you gain more musical knowledge such as scale degree and chord tendencies that you wouldn't just "have" if you had Perfect Pitch.
Experience is always better, natural gifts just give a starting advantage while simultaneously discouraging actually learning correctly taking shortcuts. Some creative bent. I see the mountain rise up. Though if you listen to pop songs these days you'll notice a frequent lack of form or rhyme. Decide to rise above and keep making music with meaning, it's your method and chance of sharing yourself or a message with anyone that listens to your song.
Don't waste it on materializing women and fantasizing about drugs unless that's your intention, eh? Ability to sing or play an instrument. Many rich song writers actually don't play anything Take, for example, Beethoven. He was writing 26 part symphonies deaf.
Collaboration with other writers. In general the best way to learn and grow as a musician is collaborating and playing with others, its a whole different level than playing solo and typically much more fun Multi-track Recorder cassette 4-track, computer program, smartphone app, etc. A voice recorder, to record how it sounds. Music Theory.
While some of the greatest songs being sung around the world today were birthed in the hearts of people who knew nothing about music, if one wants to play in a certain style, they should also follow the style.
One should not deviate too much from the Bar Blues, for example, if they are to make a song in the style of Blues, regardless of the song's content.
A lot of new, interesting ideas can develop this way and you should do a bit of it regardless but knowing some basic theory will speed up the process and help prevent discouragement due to getting "stuck".
A great singing voice. Finally, singing either lyrics or pitches along with a song gives an organic connection to it and helps you better understand whats happening in analysis; and singing harmony or bass parts expands your creativity for adding depth to a simple idea in addition to just being fun. Requirements: An intimate and vital relationship with your topic. A sensitive spirit relative to your intended audience. Sometimes you block or hit snags. Work through them.
A paying job, or normal education. Don't expect to hit a record contract so soon, pal Becoming an Effective Songwriter[ edit ] You need to know your subject matter, this is imperative. If your songs are not meaningful to you, they probably won't be meaningful to other people, and the lack of knowledge on your subject and your lack of enthusiasm for it will show through. Write primarily as an expression of your own feelings, and who knows better about what you're feeling than you?
Strive to expand your vocabulary. While some phrases may be very meaningful, there are probably words that fit the image you are trying to create more appropriately.
Also, if possible, try to live "in" the subject matter. You need to be vulnerable; to be a good writer, you must remain vulnerable in your writing. If you hide, then the song hides. There is no safe haven for songwriters. You need to practice and you need to be persistent; Yes, sometimes, the words and melody simply flow.
But most of the time songwriting is hard work. Songwriting requires work, practice, mentors, study, diligence, and commitment. We should give ourselves to the development of our writing skills. Practice, sing and write constantly. Write something every day, even if you come up with something that might initially sound trite. You can revise it and make it something good later. Whatever musical impulse lies within will come out.
Important Elements of a Song[ edit ] The most important aspect of a song is "sing-ability" Do the stressed syllables of the lyrics match the stressed beats of the music? If you write the lyrics first, as mentioned earlier, this becomes less of an issue. Are the words you want emphasized sung with longer notes? Usually 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths and octaves are easiest. Is the melody supported by the chord progression? Does the melody fall within the sing-able range of the majority?
Usually, not much lower than an A; not much higher than a D. A what? D what? Octaves exist. If you want an anthem this is important, but if your range is atypical or you have a greater than average range don't feel like you can't show it off. Too many words make it difficult to focus on the subject matter. One Theme: stay focused on the "seed thought". Repetition: This makes the song easier for the congregation to retain and memorize.
And potentially boring. Much music is not repetitive, again do you want an anthem or something personal? Imagery: Does it capture an image? Does it paint a picture of how you feel about a given situation at a given moment in time? Consistent within itself: Is the melody "saying" the same thing as the lyrics? Try to avoid putting happy sounding lyrics with a haunting melody.
Is there an interesting rhyming scheme? Is there a creative melody? Is there alliteration? Making the Connection[ edit ] The lyric is arguably the most important part of a song. Be clear. It is primary and fundamental that the audience understands what you are saying.
If not. Listen to Zac Condon of Beirut, can't understand a thing he says half the time but boy does it sound nice. Does it use the language of the assembly? If aimed at Youth, does it "groove"? If aimed at kids, is it happy? Is it intended for small group or a large crowd? Can it be sung by your choice of line up? Are there long pauses that could be filled with a lead instrument?
Could there be more pauses to let your rhythm take a "rest"? Simplicity[ edit ] Simple images cut deep like a sharp knife. One of the most common mistakes made by beginning songwriters is trying to say too much.
The simplest songs are usually the most powerful. Complex writing in "code" that sounds like some other good song somewhere doesn't cut it. Many writers play it safe behind vague or complex lyrics. And many listeners enjoy decoding the meaning of them. Do what you want. If you try to say in three minutes or less how you feel about everything in your life, you will lose people.
It is more powerful to show how you feel about ONE thing, right now.
