Lyric Writing Basics
Lyricists make their livings on writing appropriate lyrics to popular songs. Who can forget "The Rose", which Bette Midler made famous? But, Bette didn't write the song. The lyrics were written by Amanda McBroom, whom is a Los Angeles singer and songwriter.
Most star performers and vocalists don't write their own songs. Most lyrics are written by professional songwriters, sometimes alone and sometimes teaming up with others who can put a melody to the engaging words. Still there are a few performers who write their own individual lyrics in a style all their own.
Probably no other artist within the last 10 years have received so much attention for his lyrics as rap star Eminem. A prolific writer this Slim Shady is and even so, inner city kids have all along been putting the rapper's lyrics under a microscope to ferret out every nuance of insight the verbiage provided.
Eminem O P ...
Unlike many other artists who create timeless songs, it's hard to imagine any other artist singing or rapping the music and lyrics of Eminem. When Pink Floyd came out with "The Wall" concept album, it was the same deal. What lounge singer, wedding vocalist or county fair crooner would possibly sing any of lyrics from The Wall?
Just as some lyricists write lyrics to be timeless and not specific to any singer, many recording artists write lyrics in their own styles so nobody but them will ever be associated with the words. This is all a part of ownership.
Exclusive Rights ...
Some believe that to sing a song, you've got to own it. Writing one's own music and lyrics provides this opportunity like no other. But, not only professionals have the exclusive rights to write lyrics.
You can, too. Just put pen to paper and see where the muse leads you. You may be amused by where the lyrics lead and the inner journeys they help to unfold.
