Songwriting Tips


Budding songwriters often ask me, how I set about writing a commercial song, I answer, create a list of song titles.  If you have a song title then at least you have a subject to write about. Let’s analyse the song –  ‘Single Handed’ Haywoode. The chorus lyric states:  ‘Single handed, don’t wanna’ be Single Handed. Boy what’s the good if you follow a star when you’re Single handed.’

When we strive for something great, ‘follow a star’ we need to have someone at our side through the highs and the lows of our journey – we ‘don’t wanna’ be Single Handed.’

This song title is loaded with possible things to say about being ‘Single Handed’.  Listen to the song to hear what I wrote in the verses.

You need to get into the habit of wearing your song title glasses, then everywhere you look you will see song titles.
