    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    The song is an acceptable length for radio play. Probably, no more than 3 1/2 minutes. The demo should not contain musical breaks. The lyrics are honest, believable and heartfelt. Ask yourself, would the singer want to be associated with the tone or message in these lyrics? If the male comes across as weak or the female as a victim, the artist will probably pass on the song. One big no-no is self-pity. I have also been told by other publishers they don’t like to hear begging songs, though its’ been done.
