Q14 Songwriting tips for lyricists, poets and songwriters

Question 14: Should I write a song with a specific artist in mind and try to write the song in the style that would suit them best, or just write what comes natural? I believe that the best songs are the ones that just come natural, in a musical style that you are comfortable with, and without thinking of any specific artist singing your song. After you’ve finished writing your song chances are you could imagine many different artists doing it. A good singer will do justice to pretty well any good song. The key word here again is: GOOD. Have you ever heard the phrase (He’s such a good singer he could sing the phone book and it would become a hit). Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really want to hear even the best singer in the world sing the phone book, so what you have to do is this: Write a good song, Have a good singer demo it, and chances are it will get listened to. A lot of writers write in only specific styles such as: Country, Jazz, Rock and Roll etc. There is nothing wrong with that at all if you are more proficient and skillful in one style than another. Write in the style that you are good at. Pretty soon you may find yourself branching out into different frontiers. songsculptor.com Richard Melvin Brown (Songsculptor) provides a helping hand to lyricists (with little or no musical ability) in realizing their dreams of becoming a Professional Songwriter.
