Writing a Hit Song

Posted: December 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

In order to write a hit song, you have to be familiar with what songs are currently hits!

Do your research!  What songs are topping the charts? Who wrote them?  Are there any similarities? 

You don’t have to conform your style to completely match the current “hits”; however, it is important that you are able to incorporate some of those attributes into your songs.

You can also try connecting with songwriters of popular songs past or present.  They might just be willing to provide you with tips, insights, or answers to your specific questions.  Always, always, approach them professionally and respectfully.  And don’t take it personally if they do not respond; they likely have many people trying to contact them!

Make sure you believe in your song, that it’s somehow catchy, and that most people can relate to it!
