Jeri What makes hit song lyrics (10) RE: What makes hit song lyrics 23 Nov 20

Yeah, Tom Lehrer has ha SO many "hits".

WTF do you really mean? Hit songs aren't what most folky-type songwriter care about.

If you're talking about pop songs, I figure the hook is the thing. If you mean a significant phrase, both musically and verbally, that will stick in people's heads, then maybe folk, but let's have an example or two.
