Here at MP! we love a good cup of tea and we also love great music. In fact, we find it almost impossible to write without both accompanying us.
However, if someone asked us to write a song, we’d probably panic. No really, our lyrics would sound like they written by a five year old, which is why we cannot believe that these iconic pop songs were written IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES. Mind. Blown.
Shawn Mendes – ‘Ruin’
Shawn Mendes is currently on tour in the land down under and had a chat with Australian radio host, Ash London about his album ‘Illuminate.’ He revealed that ‘Ruin’ was written in seven minutes. SEVEN MINUTES! It takes us seven minutes to make a good cup of tea!
Lady Gaga – ‘AYO’
This track from Lady Gaga’s latest album ‘Joanne’ was written in 10 minutes. Oh but it doesn’t end there. Gaga also wrote ‘Just Dance,’ ‘Poker Face’ and ‘Born This Way’ in 10 minutes. AMAZING.
Adele – ‘Hometown Glory’
Adele’s debut single that introduced her to the world was written in 10 minutes. OUR MINDS ARE LITERALLY BLOWN RIGHT NOW.
Rihanna (Written by Sia) – ‘Diamonds’
Sia is a songwriting goddess and obviously shines bright like a diamond in the studio because this song was finished in 14 minutes. (Just to be exact!)
Ed Sheeran – ‘Thinking Out Loud’
This song still makes us cry, EVERY SINGLE TIME and it was written in only 20 minutes. Did you know, it was also written on a guitar that Harry Styles bought Ed as a gift? Magic.
Taylor Swift – ‘Love Story’
Honestly, it sounds like a fairy tale, but Taylor Swift wrote this masterpiece in 20 minutes. Swiftie also managed to knock out ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ in 25 minutes and ‘Out Of The Woods’ in 30 minutes. How? We don’t know. But we love it.
Beyonce – ‘Single Ladies’
NOW PUT YOUR HANDS UP! This iconic anthem came into existence in 20 minutes. Can you imagine a world where this song doesn’t exist? Nope, we can’t either. ALL HAIL QUEEN B!
