songwriting in studio-kopi

Imagine – John Lennon

 

”You might say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”

This lyric sums it all up, yet it’s so simple. Reminds me of a Albert Einstein quote ”make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler” Awesome!…

 

Crazy – Seal

 

”We’ll never gonna survive unless we are a little crazy..”

Yea, you’ve got to take some chances, being a little crazy, to break new ground, to move forward.

 

 

Three Little Birds – Bob Marley

 

”Three little birds each by my doorstep singin’ sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true, sayin’, This is my message to you-ou-ou”

 

It doesn’t get any more profound than that; thats one vivid image of life and the power of spirit

 

 

I’m yours – Jason Mraz

 

”Well open up your mind and see like me

Open up your plans and then you’re free

Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love”

 

He is so serious, yet he manages to preserve a playfulness and a lightness to his lyrics that just ”drags you in there” It’s just so alive.

 

50 ways to leave your lover – Paul Simon

 

You Just slip out the back, Jack, Make a new plan, Stan. You don’t need to be coy, Roy, Just listen to me

Wow, he makes it ”look so easy, look so clean”, but the emotionally complex verses and the 100% relief you feel when going into those super easy lines in the chorus are just .. well.. Genius.
