Q: How can there be a formula for writing hit songs? There’s no guarantees you’ll have a hit in the music business. If there was a formula, we’d all be using it.

A: Correct, writing a song that follows the formula does not guarantee you a hit song. Your song needs marketing, investment, radio placement, luck, and other factors to become a hit. Not all formula songs are hit songs, however, all hit songs do follow this formula. The formula presented in this book refers to the composition of your song, not the marketing of your song to become a hit. But your song must follow the songwriting formula to become a hit, so why not put your best foot forward?

Q: How does this book make me a better songwriter?

A: By learning the patterns that hit songs throughout the decades have used, you will gain a new set of compositional tools to better organize your songwriting process that ensure your songs are in a format that will have the largest mass appeal.

Q: Do I have to be good at math to understand the formula?

A: No, there is no algebra or complicated math involved. An elementary school understanding of basic math and an ability to recognize patterns is all that is required.

Q: Do I have to read music to learn the formula?

A: No. Some examples with written music are included for those who read music, but reading music is completely unessential to learning the formula.

Q: Who wrote “The Secret Hit Songwriting Formula”?

A: All we can tell you is he is a man. This book is published anonymously so that this information can be shared with you without risk to the author. The author’s colleagues and peers wouldn’t be pleased that he is sharing this information with you.

Q: There are so many songwriting books out there by hit songwriters- why buy this one?

A: This secret formula isn’t published in any other songwriting book currently available. This is truly the first book of its kind. Some books, like hit songwriter Jason Blume’s, will even tell you there are patterns in hit songs that his colleagues would be angry at him for sharing.

Q: Why learn the formula if other services will provide me with my song’s “hit potential”?

A: Countless services now provide detailed algorithmic breakdowns categorizing a song’s performance and hit potential. But only some of these categories are revealed to people who use their service, while others are kept secret. Companies that market Spotify playlists will also give detailed breakdowns on your song’s “danceability”, “valence”, “speechiness” and other categories but leave out the secret formula.

Q: Is this book only for accomplished, prolific songwriters or will new songwriters also find benefit?

A: You can benefit from learning the secret formula, whether you’ve already written hits, you’re just beginning writing songs, or are anywhere in between. If you’re a naturally good songwriter, you already use the secret formula subconsciously, you just couldn’t describe it our put your finger on it. If you’re a songwriter who gets stuck on where to go with your song, you can take the content of the song you’ve already written and use the secret formula to get unstuck and have options of where to go next.

Q: Won’t my music sound cookie cutter, stale and predictable if I follow a formula?

A: Sounding “formulaic” has developed a bad connotation by implying that something is cookie cutter and devoid of deeper meaning or originality. But knowing the secret formula will not make you sound cookie cutter or unoriginal, nor will it make your music sound too predictable. It will simply make your songs fit into a more glorious and appealing form.
