155: Song Titles 101

What are the “rules of thumb” for creating compelling song titles? 

How can you craft a title so that you’re “winning before you’re spinning” with a publisher?

How is it that the song titles “The House That Built Me” and “Truck Yeah”, which reside at vastly different ends of the artistically-compelling-gene-pool, are both #1 singles? 

In this episode, Brent and Johnny dig down deep to discuss some song title 101 strategies. For instance, you may have a KILLER song, but  with a not-so-compelling title like “Truck Yeah”. Is it a good idea to play that song for a publisher on a first meeting? What about the second meeting with the same publisher? What about sending in your songs to a publisher you haven’t met before…what are the guidelines that will give you the greatest chance at being heard?

We cover all these questions and more in this episode.
