In songwriting, creating a lasting impression in the listener in the shortest space of time is essential for making your songs heard. Robin Frederick in her article “Hit Songwriting: Using Trigger Words” has this to say about it…
You have to make as strong an impression as you can during the time you have with your listener without asking them for anything, not even their attention.
If you can do that, they may come back and listen again… maybe in the car where the only distraction is a crazed tailgater or a whining dog in the backseat.
Trigger words enable your message to be received by the listener more effectively and in this article Robin Frederick outlines the different songwriting trigger words and examples of songs using them brilliantly.
