Re: FINISH HIM

deadmau7's system is very good. I'd go further and say rip off song structures completely - especially if you're working in a samey genre. It's pretty obvious that almost everyone does it, consciously or not.

For example: intro, chorus, short verse, chorus, long verse, chorus, bridge, middle 8 (optional), chorus, short verse, outro (same as the intro). Millions of songs do something if not exactly like this then pretty fucking similar. I've had good results faking creativity in this way. Just come up with 5 distinct long(ish) patterns yourself and build your song according to a preordained structure. It liberates you to concentrate on all the fiddly bits, and you can always swap the order around later if the song feels like it needs it.
