Singer Songwriter nowadays write songs with marketing purpose, the title of the song must be like the title of an american movie, it must have an impact in the ears of the listeners and stay in the mind of people consciously or unconsciously
To have a song which stay in the mind of your listeners you must talk about something or a topic which relate to them personally (privately) or socially (an event) etc.. Do Singer Songwriter really write about what they feel or what the society wants or what is in the News. Sing about Flood when there is a Flood in London at the same time ? (curious) . Sing about starbuk and play with the words and titled the song ”Starstuck” See above:
What is really a Song Today ?. It is poetry, a publicity slogan, a message, a story, a concept? most of the artist will write about what they feel instantly when they are alone but when A Marketing department is behind you and find a concept for an album, each songs must mean something and go in the direction of the concept, good example Lady Gaga Album (fame) all the songs are in relation with the topic fame.
A lot of Singer Songwriter want to be free and write what they want but if what they write what they really want but if it is not in the move of the Society oh oh this is a problem for the record company ! Why everybody is singing about Party now (pink Raise your Glass) or Willow Smith (Wipe my Hair) something with hair style which will increase the sell of the hair products and Hairdresser spending.
When it is mentioned or people talk about ” Popular Song” or Pop Music, the word Pop means what it mean (popular=what everybody knows and listen) so where is the creativity in this. If you sing strangely songs like bjork you are labelled like strange singer, outsider you are not in the pop chart !
Singer Songwriter let me know what do you think about the songs people listen Now, Tell me if you think that a revolution must be done. ??
