Know the room (Songwriting tips)

If your song is for a specific setting or event, learn everything you can about that context, and adapt your song to fit.

If your song is destined for a noisy place and a distracted audience, subtleties will go to waste. Be clear and direct.

If your song stands in the way of a crowd of people getting to dinner, you'll win friends by keeping it very short.
