I just composed this 4 tracked song that sounds like something an indie/garage band would sing. I just need to add a vocal track but I still don't have lyrics or a melody for it. I'm having difficulties making a melody (I want to make it sound Strokish,Hivish or Indie-ish)

Do you guys have any tips on how to make a great sounding melody? My voice is a combination of Julian Casablancas and John Lennon's voice. I wrote a lot of other songs before, but they were all acoustic ballads. Now I want to try an Indie Rock song, because I think it will suit my voice better.

Do you have any tips on how to make a catchy (like Strokes) melody and smart (like Beatles) lyrics?

and smart (like Beatles) lyrics?
you couldn't have picked a worse example.

lyrics for Beatles songs are all over the map.
from silly to poignant, literal to metaphor.

happiness is a warm gun.
please, please me.
here, there, and everywhere.
back in the ussr.
in my life.
drive my car.
Ob-la-di, Ob-la-Da
let it be.

all "smart". all quite different.
