Songwriting Challenge 2022: The Hosts Revisit their Songs

We welcomed the return of our ex-co-host Michael Proudfoot, joining us to review our updated answers to the 2022 Songwriting Challenge.

We talked about:

  • Our new Songwriting Challenge webpage, featuring the original versions of our songs, plus listener song episodes
  • The Song Talk Meetup
  • Mashing up various styles and instruments
  • Reaching out to other songwriters to help make sure every lyric lands with the most impact (Neel would like to thank Sarah Peterson for her review of his lyrics and her great suggestions!)
  • Having consistency with your point of view (I, you, he, she, etc.)
  • How even a small change in your tempo or feel can make a huge difference to your song
