    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Some songs that use the Ôlaundry list’ technique in their lyric will use imagery that is the opposite of the title/hook. The way this works is the list could be comprised of all the things that the protagonist in the song will allow the object of his/her desires, but the hook revolves around what he/she won’t allow. Listen to the lyrics of ÒAchy Braky Heart’ for a good example of this (I know, I know, we all want the shoot the man who wrote it, but I couldn’t find a better exampleÉsorry.)
