Press Release Body: Learning the basics of how to write a hit song is comparable to
learning your ABC's before you read as a child. You have to build the basic
knowledge foundation as a songwriter before you can master the art of writing hit

There are several elements that comprise a hit song. And no, you don't have to be a
famous music composer you just need to build that solid foundation. The fundamentals
include; the song's initial impression, the melody, the lyrics, correct genre and
delivery or performance.

If you are a first time songwriter there is no need to stress, let's just start out
with the basic parts of a song. You have your melody, structure and lyrics. If you
don't already know how to play an instrument, then learn! This is absolute best
thing you can do for yourself. The melody is the leading part in the song, the part
everyone will hum to themselves. Start with just few notes and make a variation from
there just to see all the places you can go with it.

Once you have your melody then your next step is the lyrics. You want lyrics that of
course flow with your melody and ones that people will find easy to sing along with.
Write passionately and be yourself. Remember, you want to be noticed so write about
things you want to get out there. Don't hold back because you are afraid of what
people might think. Be original-after all, this is what people are looking for. Most
importantly, tell a story people can relate to in your song.

As they say, first impressions are everything especially in the music business!
How will your song sound to others? Test it on people because sometimes in our own
work, we end up with tunnel vision. What impression will your song make on the ones
you are trying to sell it to? You may end up with even more helpful tips on how to
write a hit song.

Have you chosen your genre? This may be obvious to some but there is a fine line
between some genres in the music business. You want to make sure your song fits
where you are trying to make it fit. Try to imagine where your music will make the
most sense.

Lastly, your performance and delivery will be a key selling point for your song.
Your style may be solo with guitar alone on stage or you may want to put on an
entire shindig but however you do it, you need to make a lasting impression.
Remember, you don't have to be the best music composerthe best performer out there but you do need to impress people, make them want to
come back for more!
