for an english project i'm going to need a song that's about a song, or about writing songs. anything will really do, it doesn't actually have to be a good song. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Does the whole song have to be about it?

If you want ideas for how to construct these types of lyrics, I would suggest you listen to the song "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll" - I forget who played it, but it is misconceived to be a Guns n Roses song. Check it out. It is more about other bands and artists, but you'll get the idea.


Edit: Oh, I thought you had to write one. This is still a great song, but it depends on if your teacher cares about the cuss words and sexual references.

Uhmmm... Well, apparently I was mentioned in a thread called "Japan and Lesbians."

majority of the song at least. doesn't have to be the whole thing. and i was considering tribute by the D but i can't find a censored version anywhere

Nearly a Woman by Flight of the Conchords,
Or More than a Feeling, which is kind of about listening to a song, but the lyrics are pretty terrible tbh.
Good Job the rest of it is awesome

Wither by Dream Theater is about trying to write a song and writer's block, that could work.


Smashing Pumpkins - "Hummer" has a similar theme.


EDIT: Beatles - "Glass Onion" famously references other Beatles songs.

Well, Victory by Megadeth is written using previous song names.. I don't know if that's what you're really looking for though.

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned this one.
My Iron Lung by Radiohead. Fantastic song. It's about how they had to rely on the one song from the last album (album was Pablo Honey, song was Creep), and how they were fed up of it - "This, this is our new song, just like the last one... total waste of time", etc.

This.

I heard it's about One by Metallica. They really liked it so they tried to write a better song but they couldn't so they wrote that saying they did

[references Never Wanna Give You Up, and bumload of other songs that supposedly influenced them as they were growing up - largest reference to the Nevermind Album my Nirvana - is worth a look at if it's for evaluation, tons of examples]
