Singing is almost as old as language itself. But, while most people can talk, not everyone can sing, or make up what to sing as well as Beyoncé or John Lennon. I will admit myself that my singing voice is sub par, but that doesn’t keep me from belting out my favorite lyrics. After reading an article from Rolling Stone about Sammy Hagar and the 5 songs that he wish he wrote, I thought it would be interesting to see what some writers here at The Forest Scout had to say about this. Now, none of us are songwriters or award winning lyrical genius’, but our picks are still just as good as Hagar’s, I promise.
“Only the Good Die Young” by Billy Joel – “It is a great upbeat song, I feel like a lot of people in the world can relate to it so it’s a fun song to sing.” –Brian Stickler-
“Down the Valley” by The Head and the Heart – “I love this band and they are my favorite. They all tell a story and I would want to do that. This song has a purpose too.” -Maddy Moore-
“Love Yourz” by J. Cole- “It has a really good message and its uplifting.” –Faith Fietsam-
“Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd – “I just think it is such a complicated song so it would have been cool to write it because then I would have a lot of talent.” –Parker Bolton-
“Hanginaround” by Counting Crows – “This is song is awesome. I would have love to write it because it’s so easy to sing along to and it pumps me up.” –Olivia Vallone-
