"R&B Songwriting: Share some of your favorite lyrics"


  

          

I heard Victoria Monet sing today "Tell me baby, baby, what's your sign? 'Cause you're astronomically fine."

and I thought that was quality songwriting*. Made me think about some of my favoriting song writing like when Ne-yo wrote:

Gotta change my answering machine
Now that I'm alone
'Cause right now it says that we can't come to the phone
And I know it makes no sense, 'cause you walked out the door
But it's the only way I hear your voice anymore

Like that's Dope AF.

Of course, my favorite Songwriter is Prince. I've been trying to figure out The Ballad of Dorothy Parker and If I Was Your Girlfriend for 30 years. The dude paints a heck of a picture in Joy in Repetition.

Who are your favorite songwriters?


*And by Songwriting, I am specifically referring to writing lyrics, not the music compositions.
