  • Songwriter Tip:

    We’ve all heard the stories of chart topping hit songs being penned on a napkin in a matter of minutes, and the other extreme of songwriters hung up for years waiting for the next spark of inspiration. It is critically important to recognize that inspiration in itself does not constitute commercial viability. No matter how much inspiration is drawn on, to masterfully compose a technically excellent and beautiful song about how much you love your green and yellow feathered parakeet will probably not sell to those who don’t have a green and yellow feathered parakeet. If there was a green and yellow feathered parakeet genre of music, I’m sure such a song would go platinum overnight. As basic as the analogy is, the point is adequately made that all commercially viable songs are the ones that large masses of people (the larger the better) can relate to from their own experience.
