i watch a lot of movies. Is it ok to base songs on movies ,but, in ur own outlook or outcome? Say im watching sleepless in seatle. Now i wanna write a song about a guy who is looking for a love that he lost and needs a new one. Is this plagiarism or stealing ones idea?

Don't think so. I think it's okay! Didn't Iron Maiden take the idea for brave new world from the so titled book?
I think a lot of bands are writing songs like this
C4C?

well for me its hard to have a idea come up and make a song. There is either happy,sad or others tuff but i cant remember. But the way i mentioned i can have a idea in 2 secs. But i put my own twist on it. But still has the same idea. IF i want to change the jist of it i can. I just dont want to step on anyone's toes.

Of course it's okay! Sky's the limit. Be creative, dare to experiment with different concepts and methods.

How much music is actually out there? Too much to count. It's kinda hard to write something that hasn't already been done before in some way shape or form. Unless you're taking the entire plot line from the movie and turning it into a song, I'd say don't worry about it.
