How many songwriters does it take to write a hit song?

The number of songwriters needed for a hit song is as many as it takes. That could be one or seven depending on the circumstances. Now let’s ask how many people does it take to make a hit movie? Just saw Iron Man Three. I like to sit through the credits. There must have been literally a thousand or more people to make that movie. But that is what it took to get it out. The same is with a song. The seventh songwriter, no matter what their contribution was needed to get the song out.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Never delete your songs. Especially, never delete unfinished ideas that never quite evolved into a song. You never know when you could use that idea later down the line. The important thing that you are preserving is the idea, not the actual notes. Maybe a year from now, when you’re stuck on your newest song, you’ll go over an old riff that you never used and found that if you just changed a couple of things, it would fit perfectly in your new song. Not only that, you may find that you can finish those songs later because your songwriting (or musicianship) skills have improved. Don’t delete old songs. Even if you think they suck.
