The Great Thing About Songwriting by Seth Hilary Jackson @SongDude
day, I was going through the numbers for my recent song,
"Gratitude and a Heartbeat". One of the charts showed a
breakdown by country, and I was surprised and a bit pround to see
that, of all the countries in the world, the one where the song was
getting the most engagement was Ukraine.
After I thought about it a little, it made sense. Although the song
has nothing to do with war or anything remotely similar, the
overall message of the song is being thankful for what little we
may have and just to be alive. I can see how that message might
resonate with people in a war-torn country.
It's safe to say that most songwriters hope their songs can affect
someone in a positive way, and it feels good to think that perhaps
mine has done that.
In my last
message to you, I mentioned the line of merchandise I created
around this song, but marketing whiz that I am, I didn't think to
include pictures. So now, I'm including some. You can buy the items here.
