How to write songs (Part 2)

Thanks to everyone who sent in songs in answer to the last post; they were all pretty cool. I’ve posted these three for your general delight:

Rummy Rummy Rummy by Gordon Robertson

Send in the Browns by Piers Beckley and Christine Patton

Cash by Piers Beckley and Christine Patton

I’d love to write a blow by blow account of why they’re good, but I honestly don’t know – or I’d be writing songs like these myself. I guess they fulfill all the criteria mentioned in Mark Brailsford’s tips yesterday.

If anyone, including the authors, wants to deconstruct them and explain where they’ve gone right, please be my guest.
