    My question that remains unanswered is: Can a gifted songwiter take any music piece and match it to any lyrics? Some write music, some write lyrics, few write both.

    "Clay can be molded" into the third version, but only because she was lucky enough to have Larry come by and want to help. Alas, most of us will never be that lucky. Luck is a big part, but someone with production talent has to feel sorry for you enough to do something that dramatic.

    Some good stuff here. But no mention's made of the low level of popular songwriting in the modern era. It's a very long way down from the Platters to Kelly Clarkson. No one will be playing KC in 10 yrs. "Smoke Gets' will always be heard somewhere. How about talking about that. Popular songwriting won't get better before it's acknowledged the level of crap that's being generated and released. You might get paid for landing a J.LO cut but is anybody proud of the work? Aim higher.

    Funny you mentioned stairway to heaven Tyler…I wonder if today that song would even get airplay. I doubt LZ would allow them to butcher it down to 3 1/2 mins . But I feel the same way…I don't even listen to the radio anymore because it's all generic crap with no substance ! If artists wrote music like the 70's era sound I'd be all over it…unfortunately the younger audience today are programmed . I'm the same way when I attempt to write …if it isn't comparable to anything before the dance music and hip hop train…the perfectionist part of me takes over and says ahhh f@%# it ! I'm hoping I'm not crippled by arthritis when the world decides what good music is ,and what makes it on the radio.

    For a school about music you sure don't know shit about recording audio. Great video though. Next time use some LAV mics on the guy and maybe an omni mic for the rest of the class pls.

    A hit isn't necessarily a good song. The piano is the ultimate litmus test; if it is compelling on the piano, it probably has substance, because the piano doesn't deceive with texture. The guitar produces very naive results usually; people are fooled by voicing.
