Thread Name: What makes a person a good songwriter?
Subject: RE: What makes a person a good songwriter?
I prefer Traditional songs for the very reason that at least there is some tune that the words are being sung with. So often I have had to endure a ten verse song with I admit lovely words, but the tune content is non existent , a background repeating strumming. Country Music and Contemporary songs seem to follow a similar pattern with a lot of song writers. There seems to be little imagination or concern for those who have to listen to it.
