Songs You Wished you had written
Ever listen to a song and go "man great song wish i had written that"
which songs are they?
Staind - Outside
Staind - It's been awhile
Creed - With Arms wide open
Creed - Inside Us all
AudioSlave - Like a Stone
Nirvana - Where did you sleep last night ( can't remember the original artist)
Godsmack - Serenity
Godsmack - Voodoo
Metallica - Fade to black
Metallica - One
Metallica - Bleeding Me
Metallica - Outlaw Torn
Okay there's allot but that's what i've got now
And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But a cold stone's all I see
Let my heart go
there are many, but if i'd written them, i would not like them.
Lucky Man - The Verve
Konstantine - Something Corporate
Stanley Brothers- Angel Band
Hank Williams- Message to Mother
Hank Williams- Tramp on the Street
Nobody cares how much you know,
until they know how much you care.
"What you keep to yourself you lose, what you give away you keep forever." -Axel Munthe
The Who- Pinball Wizard
George Harrison- While my guitar gently weeps
Cream- White Room
Derek and the Dominos- Layla
Queen- Bohemian Rapsody
"Yesterday" - Lennon/McCartney (McCartney, really) - let 10,000 people record covers of it, collect the royalties, then write the stuff I really want to write. "White Christmas" would work just as well.
Blame it on the lies that killed us, blame it on the truth that ran us down.
Piano Man - Billy Joel
And a few others some have mentioned. Layla for one.
Freebird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Cowboy in the Jngle -- Jimmy Buffett
He went to Paris -- Jimmy Buffett

Fountain of Sorrow -- Jackson Browne
Not so much that I wish I had written those songs, but every time I hear one of them, I'm reminded that "I wish I could write like that"
Anything by Pink Floyd. ANYTHING. My favorite band of all time. Most of all, Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd. It's a fairly simple song that is incredible. :mrgreen:
~Lock the doors, and throw away the keys, there's someone in my head, and it's not me~
There's nothing better than classic rock. Don't argue.
I am a dolphin. Fear me.
--Girls With Guitars--
I'd love to be the one who had written ANY of Audioslave's lyrics.
From "Shadon on the Sun"
Every drop of flame
Lights a candle in
Memory of the one
who lives inside my skin...
Ah... it's good stuff in the hard rock department.
I wish I had written Pearl Jam's "Alive". The concept and overall construction of the song is simple, typical, unextraordinary, but the melody, execution, the riffs, the feeling... it's so good.
Do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life...
Aerial Boundaries & Ragamuffin by Hedges
Suite Judy Blues Eyes
Mule By Gov't Mule
Judith By Perfect Circle
Don't Eat the Yellow Snow By FZ
I wish I wrote the entire Sgt Pepper album or the entire Abbey Road album.
Sometimes in life you get shown the light,
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.
In my Life, Working Class Hero and Norwegian Wood are the three I wish I'd beaten Lennon to.....
But there are millions of great unwritten songs out there, it's up to us to get busy and write them.....
:D :D :D
