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:

    If your intention is for people to remember the name of your song, then be sure to title it with a word or phrase from the song that you use more than once. That’s why most people will use something from the chorus, if there is one, because the chorus is repeated. If you’re really stuck on a title, but it isn’t repeated, is there a way at the end of the song you can use it in a repetitive fashion? One way you can do this is record it with the background vocals repeating it between the lines of the chorus. Now, when you sing it in public, get the audience to sing those background vocals.
