    Lol most songs now just have random words that rhyme. They have no meaning. e.g anything by lil wayne or the killers or lady gaga and so on.
    So just say what you want, as long as it sounds good.

    Since it's coming up to New Year, you could choose to have your song reflect on 2010....

    It depends really on the sort of atmosphere you want to achieve. Lighting will play a big part in that. Warm lighting indicates happiness, romance etc. Bright, harsh lighting indicates cold, sadness etc. BUT, you should remember that your lighting should work around the song, not the other way round, so lighting should be the last thing you think about

    As to strumming/plucking.... again, it all comes down to the atmosphere you want to achieve. Sad/slower songs would call more for plucking/arpeggios. Take Rufus Wainwright's version of Hallelujah, for example. All that is is arpeggios in the treble clef, with him singing over it, and a very simple bass line. It's effective. It works. Happier/faster songs might be more suited to strumming.

    As for the Lyrics.... well, that's entirely down to you and your decision on what to sing about.

    Hope this helps!
