HOW TO WRITE LYRICS?

Everyone knows thousands of songs, and many want to write some.

We can write the lyrics in all genres, all styles, all tones.

  • Pop, variety, rock, punk, electro…
  • Sad, funny, complicated or minimalist songs
  • Love songs, war cries, calls to revolt…
  • Very regular or decidedly unorthodox songs
  • Portrait-songs, contemplative songs, travel songs

Yet, despite this infinite diversity, they are still a more or less complex mixture of a few basic materials: narrative and discourseplots, characters and themes.

Lyricists, songwriters, discover now how 48 French lyrics, all famous, all great and beautiful in their own way, were designed and written.

ANALYSIS OF 48 FRENCH LYRICS

Our analysis consists of:

  • A detailed and commented summary of the lyrics, verse by verse, listing all the remarkable narrative and dramatic effects.
  • A detailed commentary about their plots (generally between 1 and 4 plots by song).
  • A comment about their characters and their actantial and thematic roles.
  • A study of the story parameters: timeduration, timelines, places
  • A study of the themes related to the characters and storylines.
  • A study of genres, registers and colours used.
  • A study of focusing and views.

One thing is certain: to write a good song, it is necessary to learn how to write a good story!
