These are just some songs I've heard that helped me make something up or are just really creative. :D They're either just meditative or have interesting lyrics.

Ohio [Come Back to Texas] - Bowling for Soup
Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous- ??? You'll recognize it instantly...
Remedy- Jason Mraz
Eleanor- Lo Millions
1985- (who else???) Bowling for Soup
What You Waiting For? - Gwen Stefani
Clocks- Coldplay ('Yellow' is also a good one by them)

:D If ever you're writer's block...turn on the radio!

Yellow is the only Coldplay song I like.

It's by Good Charlotte. And it's rubbish.

1985- (who else???) Bowling for Soup


Not a bad song. But not original, in fact...Bowling for Soup are just a carbon copy of the many bands that come out of America producing exactly the same songs on and on and on.

What You Waiting For? - Gwen Stefani


Catchy...but not my type of music...


Here's some of my own that help me be creative:

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths
Song 2 - Blur
What a Waster - The Libertines
Killamangiro - Babyshambles
Ashes - Embrace
Paragon - Charlotte Hatherley
World Domination - Ash
Girl from Mars - Ash
Don't Look Back Into The Sun - The Libertines
I Predict A Riot - Kaiser Chiefs
Oh My God - Kaiser Chiefs

Okay, that was just my playlist. But I am feeling quite creative right now
