    Cheers for this, I been tryin to find out about "how to write a better song" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Honora Xenndrew Magic – (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my co-worker got amazing results with it.

    I see a great deal of instruction out there on the craft of songwriting.  Not once have I seen/heard an instructor talk about the most important thing: Have Something to Say!!!  You want to know how to craft a song?  Try listening to the zillions of songs that have already been written.  If you are paying attention, the songs themselves will reveal all the common approaches to melody, harmony, rhythm, lyrics, and form.  Hey – that's why so many songs are indistinguishable from one another.  You've heard a zillion songs and you are copying them in hopes of crafting a hit – and maybe you will do just that.  Now, forget everything you learned in songwriting class, and just start thinking about the things you care about, and have strong feelings about.  When the feeling starts to rise up in your chest, open your mouth, run to your instrument and start expressing something real.  That's how you write a great song.  Feel something, live your life in a way that actually involves caring about things, noticing real things that touch your heart.  Write about them, sing about them, as you, yourself, actually feel.  Write that.  That's what makes a song great.  If your own songs don't make you weep, you aren't there yet.

    So you present some formula you pulled out of your arse and then fail to explain anything about it? You didn't even teach us "how to write a song" like your title boasts. You just explained what you think contrast is??? 

    Sorry, but I am not "satisfied"…

    No, I don't mind you asking. Alex has written many songs for lots of artists and sold millions of records all over the world. The UK #1 mentioned on the website is All Saints 'Black Coffee'. Right now as I write this, he is enjoying chart success in South Korea!
