Halloween. Whether you’re in to it or not, is An old holiday long passed its original traditions. From its folklore beliefs, Christian alterations, and charitable rituals for the poor; to its modern day family fun and community gatherings.
So, if you leave a porch light on, you’ll have everything from knee-high Tinkerbell’s to six-foot mummies holding out plastic pumpkins or bags in search of a nice haul on candy or goodies.
Some of these kiddos get pretty creative.
And some get pretty detailed.
In fact, some can leave you open mouthed, scrachin’ your head wondering… “What is that called?”
That’s all fun and games with Halloween, but not really something you want in songwriting.
And, you might be surprised to see just how easy a song can zombify a listener, just from the title.
It’s not that it doesn’t have a title.
It’s not that it isn’t mentioned in the song several times.
It’s not that the title doesn’t make sense either. It could make perfect sense.
It might even have some of the elements I’ll show you which makes a title more memorable.
Still, it leaves a listener feeling confused, staring like a zombie wondering what it’s called.
And the thing is, it is such an easy fix.
It’s as easy as wiping the makeup off a zombie to find out it’s just a freckled face, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little cutie underneath it all.
