My Lyrics, My Songs

Updated: Dec 13, 2021

Anyone who has dabbed in the field of music will know the value of originality and creativity. What consitutes a song? The lyrics and melody; putting it in a simple term. It is impossible to argue which precedes the other. Lyrics on its own are collection of words that becomes a melody when you add tunes. Imagine having the creative talent in making words come alive, touching peoples lives universally. That to me falls nothing short of it as having a superpower.

Why am i diving deep?, you may ask. For artists, specifically targetting Mizo artists, it is time to divulge into the world of a lyricist. Motivate yourself, tap into your creative minds and bring your ideas forward. This will provide a larger and bigger platform.

Why am i urging for this lane? The technicality that comes with the music industry can be quite gruesome as well. ’A Song’ has actually two components: the composition (music notes and lyrics that make up a song, created by the composers) and the original recorded audio (recording of musicians playing the song, created by the artists). For Mizo artists, often, the composer and the artist are not the same people. So, in order to claim a song, you have to obtain both Composition (mechanical/ synchronisation rights) Licence and Recording (master rights) Licence. Keep in mind that you do not need to license songs that you wrote yourself or songs that you know are in the public domain.

So, what is keeping you from the inevitable? You know you have the means, why not push it through the end?
