hi, I am a songwriter and I need some help, have you ever heard the song "Breathe Today" by Flyleaf? I want to write a song like that, but more creepy like "Dearly Beloved" by Green Day. what direction should I go in?
Sorry, I know I won't be answering to your question. But let's say that it only more of the same we have heard throught the 90's and 0's.
Have you listened to great lyricists like Dylan, Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, Peter Gabriel, and others?
why not giving it a try?
And Nick drake and the bad seeds and radiohead are bands who really can be said to have a creep sound.
Hate and those words mean are repeated all the time, and they are only strong by spelling, but with no significance at all.
Hm. I know that song, and it's really good. But if you're aiming for more creepiness. Then change it up and make the theme of it something different. Hate, pain, etc. Just make the lyrics different but you could use the rhythm of "Beathe Today".
