How do you sing your original song without copying someone’s else’s rhythm or beat, whatever it’s called.

I feel like I’m singing a Weird Al song.

That was something hard to get over when I first started writing songs. Everything was just to another melody and I couldn't break that block in my head. Still when I make music it's hard to come up with something completely original you know, you always have something rattling in your skull that pops up. Many times I've made something I like only to realize I've ripped something off. But really, to come up with an original tune you have to get a feel for this kind of thing, which I think takes some kind of instrumental ability or understanding of how melodies work in the first place.

Or just think really hard for the music that plays all around you...search your inner feelings and find the rhythm, in the streets, in the heats, in the van, the garbage can, the road or burning toad. Or something like that.
