Read through the most famous quotes by topic #lyrical




I have a structured songwriting process. I start with the music and try to come up with musical ideas, then the melody, then the hook, and the lyrics come last. Some people start with the lyrics first because they know what they want to talk about and they just write a whole bunch of lyrical ideas, but for me the music tells me what to talk about.


John Legend

Pella Grace

Lyrically I like to use themes that make the listener use his or her imagination, and to give a little of the lessons I've learned in my own life.


Ronnie James Dio
