Here is a list of all time top songs that I go through now and then for inspiration and study. Try considering the following in these songs:

 Themes
 Chord progressions
 Word and phrases
 Structure
 Length
 Titles
 Keys

 Try analyzing the songs and combining what you find with your own ideas and style. You might be surprised with a fresh new direction and perspective.

I believe anything written by Lights who is a Canadian singer/songwriter is worth breaking down and learning from. She is absolutely skilled and seasoned. Shes been writing professionally since the age of fifteen. My personal inspiration when it comes to music and i must add she is beautiful.
