What makes a real big hit?

Recommended Posts

If you want to write a real big hit, what are elements to be taken into account to ensure success? What are basic elements of a big hit song?

I have read these:

- A song with a two-four time tempo, like "Gloria", by Them, or "YMCA", the hit of The Village People, will stick in the ears of people when they're walking.

- The song is about either "Radio" or "DJ", like "Radio Gaga" by Queen, and Harry Chapin's "Morning DJ at W.O.L.D.". Guarantee for radio playtime by uninspired music programmers.

Other ingredients for a real Numero Uno?

in reality, with the right marketing anything can become a hit nowadays as long as it's just slightly mass compatible

personally I'll stick with my ignoring of every charts (apart from my personal ones) ;)
