If you wonder if lyrics still play an important part in songwriting, this episode is for you.
This is the very first episode of the Stories in Songs podcast and I answer the question of why we should not neglect the art of capturing your listeners' attention through telling a story in a song.
Especially I talk about how you can turn your listeners into fans and how you can make your songs resonate with them.
I also walk you through the amazing storytelling in My Chemical Romance's song 'Welcome to the Black Parade' that turned so many people into fans of MCR.
