Songwriting Clichés – the list so far…

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?
