So how do you know when you've written a great song? What pointers are there for you to be able to measure if you've created something that people will like and will be singing back to you when you sing it live. Well first things first all music is subjective, even the most successful songs aren’t liked by everyone in the world.

Here is my interview with singer songwriter Alex Appleton. We talk about his experiences writing
songs and performing live.
Raised in Bedford, Alex Appleton first plied his trade as a singer, guitarist and songwriter in the North-East of England in various bands and sonic experiments, culminating in his work in rock power trio Avast! Narwhals, whose music has been described as "equivalent to watching Neptune expertly guiding his chariot through the challenging spirit of the mighty ocean". Having moved south for a more temperate climate, he writes music which finely balances absurdity and musicality, which could be loosely described as Alternative Rock with a Lo-Fi feel.

You either have it or you don't, yep I've heard that one before. You can't teach someone how to write songs you either have it or you don't. Now I understand you can't teach inspiration but you can use techniques to get the juices flowing. Once you've got the inspiration going then that's where the craftsmanship comes in.
