Songwriter Tip: Song Titles-Relevant not Revealing

Song Titles – Relevant, not Revealing!

The first point of contact, is the first point of SALE and in a song, that is the title. So here is another tip for your titles:

Make the title RELEVANT, but not REVEALING! Example: if the title of your song is “She Broke My Heart Again,” I kind of already know what your songs is about and a publisher might make an assumption that they don’t have to even listen to the song to know that it is a sad ballad.

However, if the song title is “Jagged,” I can relate to the emotional feeling the title inspires, but I have to LISTEN to the song to really know what it is about. That is what we want happening for YOU! We want you to get your songs HEARD! So be Relevant in your titles and save the big REVEAL for when they are listening!
