When a Song Fails, It’s Usually For One of These Reasons

There could be any number of reasons why a song fails, but in my experience, 90% of bad ones will fail for one or more of these reasons: The form of the song is confusing. You need a chorus that really pops, but your chorus is lacklustre; your verse lyric should tell you what’s going on, but instead you’ve got it doing what the chorus usually does: emoting instead of describing; and so on.
