Kitcheneers  ;D

I am writing a few songs concurrently at the moment - we are building an extension so I have less time to record and have spent more time than usual writing a particular song

This has lead to me rewriting the verse and bridge ( pre chorus ) several times - I might use these other parts in new songs as I quite like the parts

So my dilemma is that I have sung the chorus so many times auditioning parts that I now can't get it out of my head - it's pretty cheesy throwaway stuff

It could be pretty poppy

So my dilemma is -

Do I keep this as it sounds good and rhymes or do I rework the song around a new lyric and meaning ?

Hi Andy,

If you think it's cheesy, how much enjoyment will you achieve from keeping this song? 

You know, there is something to be said for ditching your production toys.  They can help you develop as a writer and also make you a lazy writer.  I think I pay far  more attention to writing when it's just me and  guitar.  As I become older, I'm always working against the clock, trying yo squeeze so many things into each day. 

I'd say take your time writing - find something that makes you believe that you've accomplished something spectacular. Your audience is then far more likely to think the same!  :)

Cheers buddy!

The answer is, give it to the cheese-o-meter (that is me) and if she- I mean IT- cringes then you know you're on to a winner ;D
