AI Songwriting: Blessing or Bane?

Chat GPT songwriting is very bad. It also writes a lot about walking in the streets a lot by default for some reason haha. The “walking down the street with my head held high” is cringe and I’ve had it spew out the same line before. It reads like a very generic, bad Nick Cave song.

I’m not a lyrics-first person in general, but I’d say most people fish for a great melody and work backwards on lyrics so until AI can do that and provide better lyrics than this using melodic fill-in-the-blanks, there’s still hope or at least time for songwriters to work without AI. I’m sure it’ll be able to do it all eventually but clearly not now.
