i never understood why a lot of singers, rappers, etc. don't write their own songs. i feel like you're not being true when you sing/rap someone else's words. that's the whole point of being an artist, you express your creativity and talent, not that of someone else. am i the only one who feels this way???????
Yes! I think singing can be so much more powerful (and GOOD) when you know its the singer's own thoughts. Otherwise they're just being paid for their voice, not their effort and thoughts. Really, it's the song WRITERS who should be famous and getting all the money :)
thank you guys!!!!!!!!!!!! i really thought i was the only one. also, just because you sing it, it doesn't mean it's yours. it belongs to who ever wrote it.
are there still artists who actually even write their own i know only like two and thats sad but their music is great especially cause its their own
