There’s a lot of songwriters out there that are in need of some help kicking off their songwriting process on the right foot. Now I know from personal experience that from time to time a prompt such as a good song title or a few well chosen lines overheard in a conversation can be all that’s needed to open the floodgates of inspiration.

So, with that in mind, I thought I’d do some online research into these types of songwriting tools.

Some are fairly serious and some are humorous but if you have a look at them all you’ll find some value in these sites I’m sure so here is the BIG List Of Songwriting Prompts And Lyric Generators for you to enjoy and be inspired by…

Song Lyric Generators

Song Title/Band Name Generators

(Song) Writing Prompts

Remember, this list is in addition to the list already found in Songwriting Tool: Random Generators And Writing Prompts so that’s a pretty extensive list of online songwriting tools at your disposal. What do you think?

If you know of any other online songwriting tools you’d like me to share, please let me know and I’ll make sure I put it up in future posts.

Take it from me, there will be times when you’ll need a little bit of help in getting your songwriting process underway.

It’s inevitable…

But when this happens to you, be comforted by the fact that there are free online tools available that are able to get your creative juices flowing again.

As a songwriter who comes up with musical ideas much more easily than lyrical ones, I use these online random word generators and (song) writing prompts whenever I find myself in a situation where I’m fresh out of songwriting ideas.

It’s amazing that through randomness and chaos a sense of order sometime emerges

Here are a list of these online random word generators and (song) writing prompts to get you started:

Songwriting Lyric/Title Prompts

Band Name Generators

Writing Prompts

There’s even more songwriting tools available here

You’ll notice that some of these tools are a bit tongue in cheek but there are some that are seriously good. Either way, by using these tools you’ll take your creativity to places you’ve never imagined.

I’d be interested to hear how you go with any of these. If you come across any other songwriting tools that you feel will help anyone with their songwriting process, feel free to let me know about it.
