Online Song Prompt Generators
Pretty basic, Plot Spline randomly creates a tense, timeframe and location (plot) for a song with the click of a button. Nothing to enter, just click for something new.
This one is truly random with the titles often being nonsense, but for a few clicks worth of time, you may come up with something that’s usable. Also a “nothing to enter” tool – just click “Song Title” to generate.
Click a button and you’ll get a randomly generated sentence. You may come across a piece of something that spurs and idea.
