I would always advise against recording yourself singing a pop song. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, because it’s not. I’m just suggesting that doing so will help you avoid some of the common pitfalls of writing for yourself.
And you don’t even need to sing it. Some folks just have a penchant for singing a certain type of song, or a song that is similar to something they’ve already sung. That’s cool, but it’s not necessarily a good thing.
Im not saying you have to sing it, I just think it’s a good idea to think about it before you put your voice to it. I find it helps to be aware of the things that are going to be in there, and to prepare yourself for the songs that you might not be able to capture.
It helps to think about the people that you want to be in the song. Who will be in it? What will be in it? What will be in it for you? What will the people that you want to be in it for be in it for you? What is going to be the goal of the song? How are they going to come in each section, and can it be an easy song to sing? Its all part of the process of working it out.
The thing is that a lot of pop songs are just not that easy to sing in a band. They’re not meant to be sung over the top of an electric guitar, they’re meant to be sung in a particular style.
So a pop song is not an easy song to sing. The most famous pop song ever, “You Oughta Know” by Rod Stewart, is a good example of this. The problem is that this song was not written to be sung in a particular style. It was written by Rod Stewart and the band of which he was a part, and it was meant to be sung in a way that he felt like it would be the most effective way to express himself.
If you want to write pop songs, you need to write your own music. You can try to mimic other people’s styles or try to make a specific style your own, but all attempts at it will be doomed to failure because it will just sound like someone else.
Just make it your own and keep in mind that you will never have the same success that these other people had. Making a pop song isn’t a matter of copying someone else but rather, it’s about finding what you like about that style and making yourself into that style.
That is pretty much what pop songs are all about. It’s about finding what you like about the style and making yourself into that style.
