Questions:

how do you want to impress the ladies?
via:
comedy?
a love song?
a comedic love song?
a song with technical riffs etc?
all of the above?

We'll need more context if we're to help you appropriately :)

The lyrics should probably include some references to shoes and shopping.....

Write songs about how you're the good guy and you finish last or you're a bad boy that gets into lots of trouble. Chicks dig the extreme of either end, lol.

Are you trying to impress one woman in particular, or a bevy of them? Where will you perform this tune? One on one? Party situation? On stage?

Details, please.

Don't forget chocolate and pleasant smells.

Don't forget chocolate and pleasant smells.
Not as good as rainbow and unicorn :p
I think the best is to make her laugh whilte romantic too

The Hukilau was the place
Where I first saw your face
We liked each other right away
But you didn't remember me the very next day
Forgetful Lucy
Has got a nice caboosey

I used to trick you into pulling your car over so we could chat
But my favorite time was when you beat the shit out of Ula with a bat
Then we drove up to see Dr. Keats
And found out why Doug always has to change his sheets
Forgetful Lucy
Cracked her head like Gary Busey

But I still love her so
And I'll never let her go
Even if while I'm singing this song
She's wishing I had Jocko the walrus' schlong
Forgetful Lucy
Her lips are so damn juicy

How about another first kiss

Song writing is too difficult. I just sit there and lick my eye brows.

if you're trying to impress one specific girl and you know what kind of bands she likes, simply learn a few tunes by those bands. possibly the ones where the guy singing the song sounds cool :D btw, that's (almost) how i met my wife :music:

I've been having a rough time with song writing too. I came up with a pretty nice sounding slow finger-picking song on my guitar that I was planning on turning into some kind of love song, but I can't seem to make any lyrics I write match it what so ever.. Maybe I should write the lyrics first, and then make the melody around it instead of doing it vice-versa.

Just sing about:

#1 Your big bank account
#2 Your bumper sticker "My other Ferrari is a piece of sh#t too"
#3 God, my mansion is way too big
#4 I just won the Loto and don't know what to spend the money on
#5 I'm Tom Cruise's little brother

Trust me...they will come a runnin'. ;)

Specificity is the key. It's very exciting when women think that you're reading their minds.

Find out stuff about her and use it in your lyrics. Favorite movie? Foods? Books? Likes? Dislikes? What is her dream? The more specific, the better.

"I'll be your vampire, if you'll be my Bella
We'll fly out to Paris, just you and me together
Gummi Bears for breakfast, Krispy Kreme for brunch
I think you know what's for dinner, let's call it a hunch."

That sort of thing.

Well, for me there's 2 ways about trying to impress a girl with playing.
1. play a funny song they havent heard before, I recommend
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngRq82c8Baw
tabbed here:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/r/runaway_box/one_semester_of_spanish_love_song_crd.htm
not many have heard, all love it
2. Learn a song that they liked when they were younger and probably haven't heard in a while, depends on the age group of course, but I've got a few that I think are good for it.
truly madly deeply - Savage Garden
I want it that way - the backstreet boys (probably comes of as being one of the previously mentioned funny one)
and basically anything that they'd instantly recognize.

a few caveats:
- Unless it's a song you specifically wrote for them, most people want to hear something they recognize
- careful about being over the top sappy, the savage garden is borderline
- Make sure you can play the song, nobody's impressed by seeing what you can't do (sounds harsh, but somebody's gotta be a good friend to want to hear you not do it up right)

Start off by saying what she means to you. but if ur not inspired, don't write a song just yet, because the song won't be meaningful or at its best. maybe coming up with the chords or tabs first will help.

Start out by singing about dragons. Then move toward your favorite Ethiopian meal. Good luck, happy writing.

Just play any old song. The chicks fall like flies around a guy who can play any old song on a cute little guitar-thing.

If you want to write a love song, write it, play it, and sing it from the heart. Simple lyrics that express what it is that you "love" about the lady get the best responses. Picturesque speech is fantastic if you can put something like that together.

Here are the lyrics to my song, "Loving You", written for my wife:

Loving You
2001 Michael W. Maguire

In the morning when I open my eyes
I see you there and I realize,
what a blessing to have you here with me.
You always know exactly what to say.
Only you can make me feel this way.
I know there's nowhere on Earth that I'd rather be.

[chorus]
One lifetime's not enough, so, how's eternity sound?
We'll walk together in heaven hand-in-hand.
Praising God everyday for the kind of love that we have found,
and His trail of foot steps in the sand.

In the quiet of the evening chill
I know I love you, I always will.
We'll sit together arm and arm by the fire.
I'll softly, whisper, what's in my heart.
No force on Earth could ever keep us apart,
and I confess to you you're my one desire.

[chorus]
One lifetime's not enough, so, how's eternity sound?
We'll walk together in heaven hand-in-hand.
Praising God everyday for the kind of love that we have found,
and His trail of foot steps in the sand.

-- bridge --

I thank God everyday for the way he brought you into my life,
how we came to meet was more than chance.
I thank God everyday for giving me a wonderful wife,
and His trail of foot steps in the sand...
and His trail of foot steps in the sand...

Here is a link to an MP3 of it...

This is played on guitar in the recording, but I play it a lot on baritone ukulele these days.

Good Luck.

I asked my gf Sarah and she said you should write a song about lace, and make it sexy.

look, while what these people have been saying is good and true, if you REALLY wanna get the ladies you've gotta search deep in your heart and bring yourself to write about love.
look at shakepeare... he got ALL the honeys.

seriously though, ladies want to find a guy that is more then just the average asshole. they want someone who they think can take them more seriously then just another piece of ass. weather you actually DO or not is up to you, but if you want women to like you, you need to show them you are different. ESPECIALLY in high school, the girls want someone they think is more mature and more in grown up then all the "boys" they have dated. show them you are deep and they will think you're a MAN. let me tell you, from my experience ALOT of high school girls want to be with a guy like that.

trust me... because i'm in high school, write music that is deep, and get alot of ladies.
i got your back on this stuff...
message me if you want help.
(i don't check threads very often)
good luck bro!
:cool:
