To think independently.
Word very misused today. Today it is used as "being different from the rest." Maybe so, but not in all cases. Originality; being yourself, doing what you like. If what you like happens to be the trend, you are in fact, original. Losers try to be original by just being different, which results in not doing what you want to do. Just do what you want, and like it. That's your own originality.
Express your originality through song or words.

individuality, creativity, uniquosity, independence... originality is not making decisions based on brand names and popular votes, is free of labels and generalizations. ironically originality has now become idolized, so it's a trend to be untrendy.
"punk" and "indie" becoming trendy.

a word that is sorely misused today. By stupid (unoriginal) people who define themselves as hippies, punks, emo kids, metalheads, etc. etc. They claim to be original but instead they are tired retreads of some refurbished form of conformity. Can also be used to describe behavioral attributes.
That angst ridden kid says that people don't understand him because he is original. I say they don't understand him because he is stupid.

The way it's used currently, is to deviate from the norm. This is horrifically overrated, and because it's the non-conformist thing to do, other people who feel the same and do the exact same thing are more similar than they are different, even if they are alone. These people are insane, and clearly do not understand the true meaning of originality, like previous definitions state.
If you want to deviate from the norm and cause yourself to be alone, that's fine. But don't call it originality.
