The 100 top rhymes for songwriters in 2023

We know how useful rhyming dictionaries can be to songwriters. But most dictionaries just spit out a word regardless if it's usable in a song.

We wanted to do things a bit differently. So we analyzed hundreds of thousands of song lyrics to find out what really makes a usable, singable word.

Here we've put together a list of the top 100 rhymes that songwriters look up when they're writing lyrics. Click on each word to see the best rhyming words for songwriters, based off our analysis of hundreds of thousands of songs.

Here you only see our songwriter's rhymes for the pop genre. We also have genre-specific rhymes for Rap, Country, Rock, Alternative, Singer-songwriter and more genres
