Goals of an amateur songwriter

It’s a new goal of mine to write one of those songs where like, five months after it’s released, everybody goes “THAT’S what it’s about?!?” But not in a “Pumped-Up Kicks is about gang violence?!” way, more like a “Gwen Stefani wrote a song about getting her wisdom teeth out?!” way. Silliness, in other words. No idea what I’m going to write yet, though. Maybe a thoughtful ballad about going to the laundromat because I don’t want to give my landlord another $3 just to do a load of laundry. Or an up-tempo, feel-good groove about how my rats constantly fight over food and keep me awake at night.

You know, something random.

  1. Gwen Stefani’s song about getting her wisdom teeth out is clear about what’s going on from the first verse, (and I quote)

    Woke up this morning and felt no too cool –
    ooh ooh ooh ooh
    ‘Cause every time I tried to make my mouth
    move – ooh ooh ooh ooh
    The pain I’m having is so discomforting
    Please make this suffering go away
    Wo wo wo wo I told my mom what I was
    And how long I’ve been dealing with it
    I knew it was coming, but didn’t know how
    She said I’ve reached another adolescent
    monsoon – oon

    (felt the obligation to post that cause it’s one of my favourite ND songs :))

    • LOL. Ok, gotcha. Not obscure, still about a weird topic. I think it’s more of a reaction to “what is this song I’ve never heard” than “that’s what this song is about!?”
