Popular music has given us a colossal number of songs with which to bless our ears. The vast universe of audio treats available for our consumption means there is something for everyone.
As a songwriter, I put pen to paper and fingers to fret board, in hope of creating something that resonates with others in some way, shape or form, like these songs have with me.
Whether due to lyrical content, melody, or a hook that grabs me tight and pulls me head first into the wonderful bubble that music creates, these songs are some of those that have struck a chord with me in a way that others have not.
There are many more I could add, but these are, in no particular order,10 songs I wish i had written:
These Days - Bon Jovi
It Might As Well Be You - Del Amitri
Stopping By - Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
Die By My Own Hand - Tim McGraw
I’m In - Keith Urban
Devil’s Arcade - Bruce Springsteen
Be Mine - R.E.M.
Satellite - The Hooters
Straight Into Darkness - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
74-75 - The Connels
Check them out if you haven't heard them already, or even if you have.
All the best
