Get ready, people! We’re writing a song today.
PROMPT: Write a song with the same four chords repeated over and over.
People who write songs tell me that they either start with words or melody.I decided on this prompt because I want to see if I can start a song with the melody before the words. I usually write the words first.
SONG OF THE DAY: High and Dry
A fine four-chorder for your listening enjoyment. The BENDS is my most favorite of the Radiohead albums–probably because it’s the most singer-songwritery. I’m pretty sure that without this song, there would be no Coldplay.
(Still deciding if that is a good or bad thing.)
