That's a great article. Thanks! Of course it's possible to ignore the influence of pop and remain relevant, but it's always good to know what's happening in the ethers, plus a little genre-bending can't hurt in this day and age.

Very interesting. I've used call and response on several pop songs I've written. But everything else was a new thought process for me. T The staccato words followed by an extended legato is a really good piece of advice I'd not thought of before. I particularly like that element. Thanks for the post.

Wow, this is a really great read for those wanting to start writing their first songs, or even for people who have been writing for some time but are looking for a fresh approach. Thanks for the share!
