How often does the music change the direction of the lyrics as the song comes together?
For me, if something needs to change, I'd usually look for changing the music to fit the lyrics. However, it could certainly happen the other way too. I guess it would depend on the songwriter, and what they give more "weight" to. For example, since I tend to be a story-oriented "word" person, I'd rather look at changing the music to fit the lyrics. But a more music-focused writer would probably rather change the lyrics if they had a chord progression or melody that they loved... Great questions! :-D
If you had to have your musical career defined by a single song (assuming that's even possible) which one would it be?Mare Wakefield & Nomad responded on 02/18/2019 Next question
