WRITE THAT HIT SONG

The One-on-One questions are totally up to you but here are some possible areas we can explore:

 

1)What are the most important qualities of a great song or a "hit"?  Are there really any rules? 

 

2How important are lyrics, melody, harmony/chord changes, structure, etc. these days?  

 

3)How does collaboration work and why is it so valuable both creatively and on a business level?

 

4)What is the difference between traditional "songwriting” versus “production” oriented writing, e.g. writing to a track ("toplining")? 

“Jud and I have worked together since the beginning of our respective careers.  

He’s actually one of the first songwriters that peermusic signed after I started with the firm.  The man knows how to write hit songs!  

In fact, he should give lessons on the perfect structure of writing pop hits. On top of his creative talent, he has a wicked intelligence and a great sense of humor.”

–Kathy Spanberger President and Chief Operating Officer, peermusic
