So I was sitting down to start writing a song, and I'm wondering, so what scale should I use to give this particular sound.

So the idea is, post the name of the song which uses a certain scale etc. and state the scale (only if you actually are positive!) so we can understand what sound a certain scale can give.
Its how you play, not what scale you use.

But each mode everyone says conveys a feeling..whatever

Phygrian - Spanish
Mixolydian - Dreamy
Aeolian - Sad
Dorian - Happy
Locrian - Dark
Harmonic Minor - Spanish/Egyptian

alot of them I misspelled but oh well

it all depends on your interpretation...experiment with different intervals to see what feelings or emotions they seem to convey...then figure out a scale that utilizes those intervals and voila!
