How to Make Up to a Billion Dollars Writing Popular Songs.

13 Jul

1) Pick a theme that appeals to a lot of people. Good themes: missing your sweetheart over a long summer vacation or falling in love with your best friend’s girl friend or boy friend. Bad themes: the eventual death of the solar system or the impending implosion of the European market.

2) Be sure that the tune is catchy but still simple-minded enough so that anybody can sing along, be cut off in traffic, flip the other driver the bird and still not miss a beat of the song.

3) Put awesome looking girls of all creeds and colors in as little clothing as possible in your music video. (Do not stick in your cousins or the drummer’s girl friend just because they will do it for free and even bring huge sandwiches from Subway.)

4) If all else fails buy a guitar, grow a gnarly folky beard and do whatever the hell Raffi did. (Being a citizen of Iceland is also a major plus.)

    Going to write a pop song about the impending implosion of the European market and the eventual death of the solar system now.
