Hi everybody. I've posted on here a couple of times and for those of you who don't know, I'm an ENxP with a heavy lean towards T. Although I'm mostly confident in my type, there's one area of life where I'm not so sure my actions line up with it. I'm an amateur musician/songwriter and not only write original songs, but also re-write certain songs of my favorite bands, depending on the mood I'm in. Given my musical preferences and habits as a songwriter, I've come into doubt that I'm an ENxP when it comes to being a songwriter. Here's some evidence to help you guys decide:

For example, one of my favorite bands is Nirvana, which I especially love for their musical compositions. However, although I am a pretty big fan of theirs, I'm the first to admit that their lyrical abilities were rather weak, if not outright bizarre. Because of this, I've taken up to re-writing many of their more iconic songs to give them more personal meaning to me and possibly to others who enjoy them. Here are some examples my re-writes.

HEART SHAPED BOX:

ORIGINAL:
She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnetar pit trap trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice, your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your Highness, I'm left back
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice, your advice

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnetar pit trap trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice, your advice, your advice, your advice


MY VERSION:

She eyes me like a falcon cause’ I am meek
And I’ve been inside her heart-shaped box for weeks
I’ve been drawn into her duplicitous charisma traps
I wish I could stop falling for traps like a sap

HEY!
WAIT!
I CANNOT STAY AWAY!
Forever enslaved by her endless strong charm
HEY!
WAIT!
I CANNOT STAY AWAY!
Forever enslaved by her endless strong charm
HEY!
WAIT!
I CANNOT STAY AWAY!
Forever enslaved by her endless strong charm

I’m starting to have some powerful doubt now
And then I try to follow through, but just how
Running through the field getting lost have no glee
When you follow just don’t get it what do I see

HEY!
WAIT!
I CANNOT STAY AWAY!
Forever enslaved by her endless strong charm
HEY!
WAIT!
I CANNOT STAY AWAY!
Forever enslaved by her endless strong charm
HEY!
WAIT!
I CANNOT STAY AWAY!
Forever enslaved by her endless strong charm`

Her strong charm {x3}


COME AS YOU ARE:

ORIGINAL:
Come as you are, as you were
As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend
As a known enemy

Take your time, hurry up
Choice is yours, don't be late
Take a rest as a friend
As an old

Memoria, memoria
Memoria, memoria

Come doused in mud, soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend, as a friend
As an old

Memoria, memoria
Memoria, memoria

When I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun

Memoria, memoria
Memoria, memoria
(And I don't have a gun)

When I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun

Memoria, memoria

MY VERSION:

Come as you are, as you were

As what you want to be,

As yourself, as what’s you

As what makes you feel free



Take your time, do not rush

It’s your choice, do not fret

Screw the rest, have the best

Make your own:



Euphoria, euphoria

euphoria, euphoria



Come in a truss, not a fuss

As what you wanna be

Fuck the rest, have the best

Make your own:



Euphoria, euphoria

euphoria, euphoria



And make sure that you have the most fun

Yes make sure you have fun

Yes make sure you have fun



Euphoria, euphoria

euphoria, euphoria

(Yes make sure you have fun)



And make sure you have fun

Yes make sure you have fun

Yes make sure you have fun

Yes make sure you have fun

Yes make sure you have fun



Euphoria, euphoria


And finally...Smells Like Teen Spirit (C'mon, you HAD to see that coming :P)

ORIGINAL:

Load up on guns
Bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's overboard, self assured
Oh no I know, a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low [x3]
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an Albino
A mosquito, my libido, yeah

Hey, yay

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift, I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low [x3]
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an Albino
A mosquito, my libido, yeah

Hey, yay

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it was hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello, hello, hello, how low [x3]
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an Albino
A mosquito, my libido

A denial, A denial, A denial, A denial, A denial
A denial, A denial, A denial, A denial

MY VERSION:
We’re up all night,
Getting high, getting into a stupid fight
She's overboard, self assured
But we both know, the dirty word

We go, we go, we go, really low
We go, we go, we go, really low
We go, we go, we go, really low
We go, we go, we go..

The lights are out, they can’t see us
Hope they don’t come, that’d be squeamish
I feel nervous and outrageous
Hope they don’t come, that’d be squeamish
It’d be scary, make me fear-y
Make me wary, make me weary


Yeah!

We’re better then, all the rest
Though it’s not the truest contest
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

We go, we go, we go really low
We go, we go, we go really low
We go, we go, we go really low
We go, we go, we go..

The lights are out, they can’t see us
Hope they don’t come, that’d be squeamish
I feel nervous and outrageous
Hope they don’t come, that’d be squeamish
It’d be scary, make me fear-y
Make me wary, make me weary
Yeah!

This life is long, won’t live in haste
That’d be, an utmost horrid waste
Can be quite hard, leave it behind
Or else, you’ll lose your fuckin’ mind

We go, we go, we go really low
We go, we go, we go really low
We go, we go, we go really low
We go, we go, we go..


The lights are out, they can’t see us
Hope they don’t come, that’d be squeamish
I feel nervous and outrageous
Hope they don’t come, that’d be squeamish
It’d be scary, make me fear-y
Make me wary, make me weary


Life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial, life’s a trial!


From the re-written versions of these songs, what type do you think my musical preferences align with, in regards to the types of lyrics I wrote? Are there any bands/genres that you feel my lyrics line up better with then Nirvana's?
