MUSIC–WHAT MAKES A SONG A HIT?

MUSIC–WHAT MAKES A SONG A HIT?

What makes a song a hit?  What makes our daily wisdom word today, “music” special?  What does it take?  I have to be honest.  In my opinion, there are very few songs today that compare to the  pop or the many singers in rock like there once was.  If I had to decide what makes a song, true music, the singer must have the ability to sing and raise or lower octaves, draw out notes. and have the right words to make it special.  I have noticed more and more individuals of younger age are not into pop or rock.  Since this article is going to be about opinion, in mine, “Whitney Houston” had it all.  She could sing from Alto to Soprano, or sing a song and make the words within it mean “something”.  She got her message across with her dance, her moves, her voice, the words, and so much more.  I felt and still feel she is the greatest singer to grace us with her talents with her early music.

I think pop music by male artists compared in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s across the board as well.  I remember the first time I heard Prince sing the music for Purple Rain, tears shot from my eyes!  What makes particular music a hit?  This is our question today.  I not only believe that the music today is hard to dance to (unless current country songs), I feel it is hard to hear.   The words often are not articulate in today’s music.  You can hear the lyrics translating to the feeling and message in particular musical hits, pop, soft rock especially in songs that were hits in those days.  Some songs have the ability to simply make us happy!  I personally find happiness in the musical notes and words in the song, “We are Family” by Sister Sledge.  I feel a happy feeling and want to dance all over the place hearing this song.  Madonna has been such a big hit.  Looking at her songs from my perspective, I never saw much in her singing.  She was a good singer, and put out great music, winning many awards and rising to number one on the Billboards constantly so the majority of individuals don’t agree with me.  Before continuing, Let’s see how the Webster Dictionary describes what music actually mean.

Webster Dictionary Meaning of Music-1.  The science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity. 2  Vocal, instrumental or mechanical sounds having rhythm, melody, or harmony.

Daily Wisdom Words Definition for music-a series of chords, notes and words blending together which appeals to a wide range audience.  

If you read the Webster Definition, it is pretty difficult to make music, especially the kind that appeals to a wide range audience. Yet, those that succeed create beautiful art and music indeed.  I would love to know your opinion what makes music a flop or a hit?  Is it the voice?  The words?  The tune?  or a combination of brilliance of all of it?  Thanks for reading today.  Please think about the above questions and leave your comments in the “join the discussion” section beneath this post.  Can’t wait to respond to your comments.
