If you want to be a succesful writer, then you need to think the
same way the music industry people think..:They think "is there money in
Will my song make money
Always hard to tell. I think that most wish to become succesful, and success means moey.. You need to know what the music business wants to hear..If you listen to the chart music you come
pretty close to what the A&R Exec. are looking for. If you make a product
that comes close to what you will hear there, then you're on the right
No matter how good you think that your song is or how commercial you think your song is, A&R people and the music publisher will have the last word on that issue. On the end
they decide if They want to invest in your music. If they hear the "business" in your song , then they keep their job
safe. They don't care that you will earn money.. If you earn money, they will for sure get an income..
Tips on how to make commercial music and songs..

request your song on radio and so...)

strongest words in your songs.

about what's close to your heart, then the words will come more easily.
