Writer's Block? Mind Blank? Feeling Uninspired?

Everyone who has tried to write a song or poem knows how frustrating it can be at times. I've had writer's block hundreds of times and I'm sure you've experienced it as well. It's probably why you're here.

I've written around 2000 songs, about quarter of them with lyrics. I'm not a master, but I have had practice . . . lots of it.

I was going to put this list together for myself originally, but thought I would share it with the world as it's a known fact that every minute five people come down with a serious case of writer's block.

If you use one of these ideas and decide to record it, please share it with everyone here. If there's a link where you uploaded it to something like YouTube or Soundcloud, I'm sure people would love to hear it.

Some of these ideas are subjects and topics, while others are song titles that will hopefully spark something in your imagination. Feel free to run with them any which way!

P.S. I'll also include some information below on how to break writer's block and systematically generate ideas.

Ideas for Unconventional Love Songs

I love a good love song. Who doesn't? This is one of the most common song topics, so here are some love song ideas, with a twist.

1. You find out that your lover has different political views than you.

2. You decide that you will the person you're dating as long as they agree to a long list of requirements.

3. You tell the person you are in love with that they have until the end of this song to say I love you.

4. Make love to me sideways.

5. I love you almost as much as he does.

6. Love cuts like a plastic knife.

7. Love is in the eye of the beholder, and I am blind in one eye.

8. Why do you love me?

9. I'm pretty sure you have me confused with one of my octuplet brothers.

10. If you take too long to love me, I might die.

11. Tomorrow never comes so love me yesterday.

12. Love is kinda funny. Is that why you're laughing at me?

13. People only love you because you have a cool name.

14. When we get married, I don't want you to just do the cooking and dishes . . . I want you to do other housework as well.

15. You put the lowercase "o" in Love.

16. I loved you the moment I met you . . . But now that I've seen you in person, I'm not too sure. (Internet love song)

17. Let me Google your noodle.

18. All I want from you is love and money.

19. Money can't buy love, but I'll love you if you give me money.

20. Money can't buy love, but it can rent it.

21. I want to grow old with you and do outrageously filthy things to you.

22. If you love me so much, why do you want to visit your parents so often?

23. You put the "baby" in "oh baby." Grow up.

24. I know you love me 'cause I'm awesome.

25. Let's get away . . . from this topic.

Hate Song Inspiration

Hate songs are more common than you think. If you listen to metal or gangsta rap then you already know this. I included a few hate songs in the love section, but if you really want to write a song about hate then this is the list to go with!

I didn't feel terribly good writing this list, in fact . . . I hated it. I hope you can bring something positive to these hate song titles. Don't be too obvious, though. Give your lyrics direction and meaning.

26. I'll make hate to you.

27. Hate is such a lovely word.

28. You brought this hate upon yourself.

29. Hatefreak

30. I hate how you do that.

31. Can you please not hate me?

32. Hate the hater.

33. The hippo who hates

34. Would you like a hate sandwich?

35. Hate is not for lovers.

36. Hateboy

37. I love life but I hate you.

38. I hate life but I love you.

39. You are #1 on my hatelist

40. Hatemaster

41. There's a time for hating and it's just around the corner.

42. I'm telling on you because you aren't allowed to hate me.

43. Who gave you permission to hate me?

44. Predictable hate

45. Hate me

46. I hate my job, but I hate everything else even more.

47. Why does hate have to be so damn fun?

48. Hatesong

49. Blinded by hate

50. Hatecake

68. Why? MCA

69. Move that body (out of the way)

70. I like disco dance.

71. DJ, change that song.

76. Only four more years

77. Vote for me

78. Obama and his mama

79. Hitler's dog

More Ideas for Funny and Cute Love Songs

Love is a well of inspiration that (almost) never runs dry. Here are some more topics that I thought of.

186. I'll miss me when you're gone

187. Only you make me love us

188. We belong together (maybe forever)

189. The smell of your lips

190. I love the way your arms look

191. Taste my love juice

192. Tickle me 'til I cream

193. Spread the disease of love

194. Twisted lover

195. Besides the blocked arteries, you have a wonderful heart

196. We'll eventually get there

197. I'll give you at least six more chances (because I love you)

198. Hollywood mother lover

199. I feel encapsulated

200. Please put my heart back in the jar (on the shelf)

Anyone who has ever tried to write something knows the pain of staring at a blank sheet of paper or an empty computer screen and having no idea what to write. Writer's block can be tough to overcome, but it's not impossible. In fact, inspiration is everywhere!

Here Are Some Tips to Help Break Writer's Block:

  • Set aside some time every day to work on writing songs, and commit to it. Have a ritual. This will keep you from wasting time on figuring out where to go write and when.
  • Once you start the clock and start writing (and timing yourself is not a bad idea), don't stop. Allow yourself to write even what you think might be a bad song. Don't be critical of your work. When you're just starting, negative thinking and internal feedback only make it harder to write. Instead, focus on finishing your song. Once you have something on paper, you can edit it to make it better.
  • Remember that any topic is better than no topic, and any song is better than no song.
  • Set a goal of writing a certain number of songs every week. In 1943, Woody Guthrie made a New Year's Resolution to write a song a day. Were all of them good? No, but not only was he improving every day, having so many songs guaranteed that at least one or two of them would be stand-outs.

Below are some tips on generating ideas themselves.

1000-things-to-write-a-song-about-ideas-for-songwriters-and-poets

How to Come With Ideas or Inspiration for Songwriting

First, like I alluded to in the beginning, the most important thing as you begin writing songs is to keep from criticizing yourself as you're writing. Let yourself be bad at first. Take any topic and use it. Let creativity happen! It's not always a pretty process. Beyond that, here are some methods that you can use to structure the creative process.

Idea-Generation Method #1: How Was Your Weekend?

  1. Write down what happened to you over the weekend or the past day. Take note of everything: who you talked to, what you ate, what you did, the weather, people that annoyed you, things that you said or saw, all of it. Most importantly, take note of how you felt at different points and see if you can spot any themes.
  2. Once you've done this (take anywhere from five to twenty minutes) or so, go back through your writing and try finding things that stand out to you. Why did you write some of those incidences down? What was interesting about it? Do you see any characters or themes? Did you learn anything about yourself or someone else? Remember, there are no wrong answers here, and there's nothing too boring to be written down.
  3. Finally, go back through your list of notes about what was interesting, and pick out a couple that you feel most strongly about and start writing a song!

Idea-Generation Method #2: Rhythm First, Words Later

Another way that some people start writing songs is by first creating the rhythm. Tap out a rhythm, let notes fill themselves in, and then see what kind of words come along to match it. You don't have to start with the words to write a song.

Idea-Generation Method #3: 60 Quickly

  1. Get a sheet of paper and create six categories. The categories can be anything, from "things I hate about myself," "things I love about myself," "people I hate," "people I love," "people I respect," "things that annoy me," and "least-favorite family members" to things like city names, countries, "places I've been," professions, names, foods, inventions, "things I'm scared of," "things I've said that I regret," etc. The list is endless.
  2. Once you have your six categories, write down ten things for each category. The trick to doing this is to do it as fast as possible, giving yourself no more than a minute for each category.
  3. Once you have sixty things, go back through and cross out seven from each category, leaving only three. Then, go back through and cross out two more from each category, leaving only one from each category.
  4. Then, cross off three more, leaving only three ideas. Your best ideas for this will come from those topics that cause emotion to rise up inside of you. The ones that are left should be the ones that resonate the most with you, where you feel like you have the most meat and the most to say. Not all of your answers will resonate, and that's okay. That's why you write sixty of them.
  5. Then, get started writing. Don't stop until you have a song finished, no matter how bad it is. To write songs, you have to finish them.

Method #4: A Time When . . .

This is similar to the "How Was Your Weekend Method." Simply think back to a time when . . . and fill in the blank with anything like:

  • You were scared.
  • You were in love.
  • You were hurt.
  • You felt lonely.
  • You felt happy.
  • You lost something you loved.
  • Etc.

And write down everything about it in detail. Choose some of your statements that resonate the most with you and start writing a song!

Method #5: Steal

You may have heard the saying that good artists borrow, and great artists steal. Well, I'm not recommending you steal ideas, but I do think it's a good idea to get inspired by some of your favorite art. What are your favorite:

  • Books, authors, poems, lines of literature
  • Movies, scenes, or lines from movies
  • Articles
  • Artists, colors, words of art, parts of art pieces
  • Buildings, architectural style
  • Songs, melodies, lyrics, styles, beats
  • Etc.

The more specific you can get about what you like about something, the better it will be. Then, use that piece of what you like as inspiration. Start your song with a line from a movie that you love. Or use a beat you like and modify it and then add some lyrics. It's not stealing, it's art!

THX sooo helpful

Chad A.L on January 30, 2020:

The thing i find most helpful once you finally have your topic (which is probably the hardest for me) is finding a song with the same topic and understanding the structure on the lyrics for each verse, it gives you inspiration and a better understanding on roughly how that artist wrote their lyrics. Also for everyone who doesnt play instruments, there are people who make instrumentals and sell them or find a song with a tempo/ beat type that you like and try to create your own using a program( i use FL studio 12 ). Another thing i use myself for writing lyrics is making punchlines or very short lines and filling them with words or extending and using bigger words to fill the bar/line instead of trying to cram the perfect line into the bar which makes it sound not so great, hope this helps at all for anyone.

Barefoot Colby on January 13, 2020:

I'm a Roots Rock/Country Singer/Songwriter. I believe that Songwriters & Artists talents are given to us as tools to fulfill the assignment we were made responsible for completing during our time in this realm

I believe this explains the susceptibility that we seem to have to conditions such as Depression,Manic Behaviors, Substance abuse etc...we are very emotionally sensitive and empathetic to the slightest change in the vibration & unseen energy that is always being generated from the spirits within.

I also feel that the path that has been prepared for us to walk through this realm has been designed & created so that the experiences,emotions, people & places we encounter is what forms the essence of the individual's we are & in these experiences,places,people & the opinions & judgments that become the reality of the universe we inhabit is our assigned material.

As say Historians document & make sure are existence is chronicled & recorded we also can do with our songs & as though it seems to be rarely met our goals & reasons for recording are past is so that others can learn from our mistakes & not repeat them so can our songs be examples of what not & where not to go or do because this was how it effected us.

Or you could even I suppose look at it as like Newspaper journalism keeps us informed of the experiences of others & how the may effect our lives we report what's happening in our own little corner of the universe that is just my opinion & am in no way attempting to imply that it 100% correct & factual definition & requirement of being a Songwriter I only thought to share it you in the hope that it will in someway be a positive influence & aid in solving a difficulty in writing your experiencing Peace Strength & above all empathy & understanding to all

Grow Old With You

I knew from the moment I met you

That we were meant to be

And now that we have each other

I promise never to leave

I promise that I'll stick by your side

Through thick and through thin

I promise to wait until you come home

And always let you in

TADA!!!

Hi! I like singing! on July 06, 2019:

This site is helpful BUT I want to write a song about something happy. I don't want to write something about love or hate because that's what almost everyone does. I want to be happy and creative. I don't really like writing depressing songs. If it helps, maybe write a song about a dream you've had. I write down dreams I've had and somehow turn them into dreams. Some ideas I've had are writing songs about, Friendship, Adventures, Growing up and Family. This is just my opinions and ideas. Feel free to use them if you Like

Unknow on July 02, 2019:

Claire on July 01, 2019:

I hope more people can find this helpful!

This site is awful almost all these ideas are idiotic, the ones that aren’t completely stupid, just don’t write songs.

JoyMercurio Michael Jackson never played an instrument, and look how far he got!

JoyMercurio on May 01, 2019:

I have my own comment and question, but I wanted to reach out to @hatethatiloveyou I have a few of the same issues as you, but I'd still love to work with you one day! Just let me know! And @abbyvoss definitely get a mini tape recorder or use your phone! That happens a lot to me when I'm at work!

First and foremost, I love everything I have read here! This is my new favorite site! Thank you for sharing your experiences and ideas with all of us! I have put a shortcut to your site on my homepage! I love it!

My issue is mainly with the music. I can write and write like crazy. I can write a whole song on a napkin in a restaurant before the food arrives, but I don't play any instruments. Is there any way to actually pursue anything serious with songwriting if I can't play any instrument? I've been writing songs and poems... Mainly songs since I was 7 years old. And I remember not really knowing what I was doing, I just knew that I enjoyed it and it was an outlet for me, still very much is. I'm just curious if I could actually do anything with any of the thousands of songs I have written... But they are only on paper?

i am trying to write a song but i have no inspiration and ideas

PM....... on April 26, 2019:

It helped me its really good! and this is what I have so far...

I am normally a happy person, but u made me depressed. My happy sole is locked away inside of you {Eco}... I'd call u if I was sad but I can't move {Eco}. Just give me a chance I can change...

I'm locked inside of sadness

Its not bad or really good I am still working on it...

Hatethatiloveyou on April 26, 2019:

I have a poem I wrote and I used a few ideas from this website and it came out really well. I love writing and singing but sometimes I feel like my songs sound stupid or they lack emotion. I could really use some advice and I am willing to share with someone and listen to their advice. Thank you and have a blessed day.

adidas_lover on April 21, 2019:

i like to write songs but the thing is that i keep coping other songs tunes which i kinda think is copying.

Tanaka on April 16, 2019:

It was amazing

Abby Voss on April 14, 2019:

Also, I’ve noticed something about the comments—when I signed up it said that I have to be 18+ years old, but in the comments there are 10, 13, and 14 year olds.

Abby Voss on April 14, 2019:

I’ve basically been writing songs my entire life—I’ll be bored or sad or tired and I’ll just start singing something that pops into my brain. Even though I do this all the time, I can never remember the lyrics that I come up with, and when I actually sit down and try to write, I have no inspiration. I have a song that I wrote in fifth grade and I really like it, but it needs chords or some support so that it isn’t just a cappella. I can’t play any instruments so I don’t know how to solve this problem. Tips?

Grace on April 14, 2019:

I’ve written one song but I want to write another

Grace on April 07, 2019:

I am 10 and I want to write song song to inspire people but I can't seem to find the write theme or lyrics to match to want I want to do.

Kayla on April 03, 2019:

I recently lost a family member, and I might be losing another. I plan to write a song about saying goodbye too soon. Could I get some pointers? This is what I have so far, but I don’t think I’m going to keep it:

I wish you didn’t leave me

Now I feel alone.

I wish you could see me,

now that I’ve grown

Destiny on April 02, 2019:

I am 13 and i am trying to write songs but it's to hard i can't come with ideas and when i finish the song i like it but the next time i see it i don't like it. It's super weird.

Not important on April 02, 2019:

I’ve been writing lyrics for a really long time and I have to say it doesn’t matter if you have sad lyrics or happy lyrics or whatever but it does matter to have people be interested in your song this starts by the name they don’t hear the song yet make them come (I’m talking about the fans not only is this part of a great career But it’s also part of marketing you need to have a song title to please any type of person a emo, preppy,trendy,fun, anyone you have to please if your making pop music but in my case I make punk rock music and sometimes in this case you would need this at certain times would not recommend the song names.

미나 on March 31, 2019:

I got this...

“My happy ship is sinking

The water tastes like icing

And the cake is f*cking burning”

Well then.

This was probably the most helpful thing ever! I’m 13yrs and when I get older I want to be a singer and this is a good way to start creating my own songs. Thanks!

a girls love for music on March 20, 2019:

Hi, I'm 14 years old and want to be a successful songwriter and singer but I can never finish a song. It's sad because I know that what I do have is great I just don't know how to simplify (or take away) parts of the song so I can finish it. I want to be a lead singer of a girl band but I can't even finish a song, got any advice?

Gabby on March 16, 2019:

I really like writing songs but I’m not good at writing happy songs I usually write sad songs like “i need you mom” bc my mom left so I only write depressing songs so yeah I need help writing happy songs any one have ideas

Chrystal on March 15, 2019:

I've written songs before...mostly about my depression..... some cheerful...the rest are songs that I usually say "we shalt not speak of this"

Harley on March 02, 2019:

now that I know Taylor Swift used this app I will turn to it because Taylor Swift is one of my inspirations to make song.

Someone with OCD on February 09, 2019:
