I’m sure we would all have our own opinion about the most important part of a song, but I’ve compiled a list of my top 5 most important parts. All of these areas deserve extra special attention. In no particular order:
The hook. The title of the song is worth getting right. The better and more original your idea is, the easier it is to turn it into a hit song. A weak idea is hard to turn into a hit. It’s worth spending lots of time finding great ideas.
The opening line. Either peaks the listener’s interest or loses it. Killer opening lines increase your chances of keeping a listener interested or getting an artist interested in your song.
A memorable melody. If you write a melody that people can’t get out of their heads, you may have a hit on your hands. Hit melodies are generally easy to remember and they are infectious. Shoot for melodies like that to increase your chances of a cut!
A lyric that makes sense. You can write songs that feel awesome and make sense. If you pull off both, you’ve got a song that stands above most others. That should be your goal as a writer if you want to get cuts.
Put extra effort into those 5 areas, and you will find yourself writing better songs. And, as we always say – it all comes down to “writing better songs”.
