Writing lyrics are easy - no way!

2010.10.17 14:36


Although seemingly not a big deal, writing lyrics can be as torturous as running a marathon; creating a work is a strenuous process, yet many listeners take music for granted, underestimating the effort musicians have put into their work.

Why do we assume that creating music, and especially writing lyrics, are easy? That is because normally we tend to limit ourselves in the boundary of the consumer, since we do not have the opportunity to grasp the experience of making music. Furthermore, we naturally assume lyrics are relatively approachable in that lyrics are in language which we use everyday, while it takes a certain level of adroitness to play musical instruments.



I have been there, that is I have been writing my own music as a hobby. My works are still rudimentary in terms of their musical values and composition, but they have given me enough opportunity to recognise how hard it is to produce lyrics as well as the instrumental track. In fact, one is likely to write the lyrics after the song has been composed -or at least I do-, and one does not want to mess up the awesome composition by writing faulty lyrics that are out of scope. Therefore it takes heaps of time to come up with the lyrics that reflect the song's intended atmosphere and improve the musicality of the song.

In conclusion, lyrics are as an important part of the song as instruments are, and hence should not be underestimated based upon the fact that they are written in languages used everyday. We often gasp at the skills and performances of the musicians and talk about how great they are; so, why do not we pay more attention to the lyrics and acknowledge the hardworking done as to produce such lyrics?
