What A Song Must Have

song

A song must not only have a rhythm and a beat. A song must also not only have harmony. A song must even not only have lyrics.

You see, there’s more to a song than what it seems to be.

Even more so, here’s a few on what a song must have:

A song must have a message, elaborated by your reason of doing so.

Think of it as writing a love letter to someone you like for 10 years now. What do you want to say to that person? What do you like about that person? Why do you like that person? A song must not only be able to convey the message you’re trying to tell someone you like, but also the reason why you’re conveying the message you’re trying to tell someone you like.

A song must have a feeling, elaborated by your inspiration of doing so.

Think of it as telling a love story to someone you like for 10 years now. How do you want that someone to feel after hearing that story? How do you feel while telling that story? Why are you telling that story? A song must not only be able to make someone feel something, but also the inspiration why you’re telling that story.

Indeed, there’s more to a song than what it seems to be. Also indeed, a song must have a message – a message that is elaborated by your reason of doing it. Even indeed, a song must have a feeling – a feeling that is elaborated by your inspiration of doing it.
