Song Talk Radio Songwriting Challenge: Write a song based on a title
Our latest songwriting challenge was to write a song based on the title Why Do You Cry?, submitted to us by Ann Bekooy.
Mike, Neel, and Phil each wrote a song for the challenge, and we also invited our listeners to participate. The answers resulted in great conversations about themes, ideas, lyrical approaches, music theory, and more.
