I’m collecting songwriting clichés, for my own amusement.
Here’s the list so far:
- – The ‘tone-up’ key change for the final chorus
- – A saxophone solo in a power ballad
- – Rhyming self/shelf, love/above, together/forever (thanks Jannie)
- – Using an established folk tune (looking at you Bob Dylan).
- – Overuse of the word ‘Baby’ (thanks Corey)
Have you got any others I can add to the list?
