How to Compose a Love Song

People write love songs differently. Love is different too: it can be first, unique, happy or unhappy. And these manifestations are heard in different songs. Musicians say that it is easy to compose a song in a dream or when you wake up at night. But what if you are not a professional and can’t write a song for a loved one? What to do in such cases? It turns out that there are also rules in songwriting.

  • Emotions

They should overwhelm you with your head. Then the song will be emotionally colored and pleasing to the ear. To achieve a special emotionality, you should start writing songs during peak states of your mood – both peaks of positive and negative emotions. Songs sound special if they are written by a loving person. So, it should describe your state of feelings.

  • Concentration

Your head shouldn’t be occupied with anything other than writing a song and an image of a loved one in your heart. Otherwise, the process will not work.

  • Personal feelings

The best songs are those that reflect strong personal experiences. It is necessary to learn to reflect your emotions, feelings in the right way. There is no need to rush to finish a song as soon as possible. You should carefully listen to the finished song several times. This will help find flaws and correct the material, before singing it to your loved one.

  • Favorite songs

Listening to instrumental compositions of your favorite classics and studying them before getting into composing will help awaken inspiration. Watching a music channel for a long time or walking in nature will also help you in your search for a muse.

  • Romantic lyrics

You can write beautiful, exclusive lyrics if you have an extensive vocabulary. If it is limited, it is worth spending time expanding the horizons. The study of philosophy, psychology, history, and literature will provide significant assistance in songwriting. The textual component of the song should have a logical construction, be consistent. It is important to observe conciseness, make lyrics as informative as possible. There are certain limitations in the length of the song that should be considered. A song lasting more than 4-5 minutes will tire a listener, which is unacceptable.

  • Appropriate moment

When your muse has left a clear imprint of your work in your head (namely the text of your future song), grab paper with a pen and a musical instrument, run into an empty and quiet room and create. Writing poems on a piece of paper, start picking up music. A small photo of a loved one in a frame on the table can increase the “productivity” of your work.

  • Song itself

After determining the genre, you can start writing the song itself. It is not necessary to sit down at the table, selecting words and rhymes. Many authors use spontaneous inspiration. It can come anywhere: on the road, at work, on vacation. You should always have a notebook and a pencil with you, record the ideas that came. Then, in a calm atmosphere, they can be put together, corrected, and made into high-quality text.
