Successful Songwriting: Song component time

One important aspect to writing a song, which is often not given enough consideration, is the time spent within each song's components. Something you'll commonly find in a hit song is the consistent amount of time throughout a song. Here is the current breakdown for each song. 1. Intro: 12 seconds 2. Verse: 30-35 seconds 3. Pre-Chorus: 8-10 seconds 4. Chorus: 17-30 seconds 5. Bridge: 10-20 seconds 6. Chorus should begin between 30-60 seconds after the song starts. Preferably closer to 30 seconds. 7. Overall Song Length: 3:00-3:30 minutes
