How to Make an Unforgettable Music ProductionWednesday, August 11th, 2010
Have you ever wondered what makes a song instantly recognizable?
Take a listen to the first five seconds of this song:
How is it that it’s possible to know what song it is just from listening to the first five seconds?
One instrument (acoustic guitar). Two chords. It can’t be any simpler than that, yet it’s unique and easy to remember. How many times have you been to a live concert where the artist starts playing their hit song, and within the first couple of seconds the crowd goes crazy? Why? Because they know what song it is immediately.
I was at a friend’s house one night and he was flipping quickly through his iPod to find a song he wanted to play. As he scrolled through, we decided to play a game. He would play the first second of a song and stop it–the rest of us would have to guess it. It was sort of like the old game show, “Name That Tune,” but we only had one note or chord to identify the song.
Seems pretty tough, right? Surprisingly, we got almost all of them right. Why is that?
It’s because hit songs have to be instantly memorable. In order to be memorable, a song has to have unforgettable production value. I wish I could give you a magic formula for how to make your song instantly recognizable, but I can’t… But one thing that all of the artists you hear on the radio have in common is this: they had their songs produced by a professional who knew what they were doing. When a talented artist teams up with a talented producer who knows how to record a hit song, big things are bound to happen.
It used to be that hiring a great producer would set you back thousands of dollars. But that’s just not true anymore. When you team of with Studio Pros, you’re teaming up with a group of professional musicians who have worked with countless successful artists in the past. You’ll be able to take your great ideas and have them produced at a quality that’s equal to the hits you hear on the radio.
Think about how your next production can be as unforgettable as today’s hits. Call Studio Pros today and record something that won’t need any longer than five seconds to identify.
