"I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt he'd found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish, but he just kept right on"
Killing Me Softly - Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox
Writing a great song is not always as easy as it looks. Not only do you need great hooks and a catchy chorus, but your verses also need to be meaningful, emotive and really connect with your audience.
All the best songs do this. You always remember those songs that seem to strike straight into the centre of your heart. It is as if the writer has somehow read your mind is singing about exactly the things your are feeling.
Everybody want to know the answer to that age old question: "How do you make a hit song?"
Unfortunately, there is no secret formula entitled "How to Write a Hit Song in Ten Easy Steps." (Although, you can check out that link for a good place to start 😜). Songwriting is an organic process but the most important part is being able to connect to real emotions and experiences and translate that into something your audience just gets.
