“I hope the people who wrote those songs are happy. I hope they feel it’s enough. I really do because they’ve made me happy. And I’m only one person.” – Stephen Chbosky
Ever wondered what makes a song unique? Why certain songs get more recognition than usual? Why certain songs give more feels than usual?
Ladies and gentlemen, here’s what makes a song unique:
Every song is different in its own way, but it usually has its own theme. This alone can attract hundreds of music lovers, just by searching any kind of music that closely relates to how they feel right now. This alone can also attract thousands of music lovers, just by creating any kind of music that completely relates to how other people feel right now.
Be it pop or rock and RnB or acoustic, music genres says a lot about how a song is created uniquely. One, a genre helps a music lover identify what kind of song he should be playing. Two, it helps a music lover find a theme that closely relates to how he feels right now. And third, it helps a music lover become more interested with other songs in the same type of genre.
Let’s say, you’re trying to write a love song. What would you do first? Build a structure, right? It’s also just like making a brand new house. You need a foundation (which can be your theme), a provision (which can be your genre), and a structure (which will help you write the best kind of love song out there). All of these can make a song unique – in its own way, as well as in its own pace.
