#Songwriting Tip - Make Your Lyrics Come Alive

Every successful song has a theme; oahu is the emotional message in the middle of the song. I like to call it the "core idea." It's the central thought, the theory around which the complete song revolves.

A large amount of successful songs - really, a majority - are built around love and relationship themes: I really like you. You never love me. Your love saved me. You cheated. I'm jealous. I don't love you anymore. We're soulmates. You take me for granted. I miss you.

These are ideas that songwriters visit over and over again. For example, many songs has been written on the theme, "Don't take love for granted." Because listeners have heard this theme frequently, they're likely to tune it out, particularly when the lyric uses familiar phrases they've heard before.

#Poetry: Summertime Is Here Again

Summertime Is Here Again
(Poem by ViennaCC)

Summertime is here again
In these days not really newsy
Trees in the alley whisper down the lane
Who can now feel bluesy?

Summertime is here again
Hearing notes from a gaily tune
In the grain, maid and swain
Licking, licking, licking jam in June

Summertime is here again
Enjoy the sun and summer breeze
Winter was like ball and chain!
Life can be a big, big ease
