That may sound like a frustrating process, but most writers would agree it's necessary to write non-hits to get to the nuggets. What comes first, the chicken or the egg?
Breaking it down A deconstructed song in my opinion has 4 components. I work quite linearly starting with the verse, then the pre chorus and then the chorus.
The cool thing about this kind of structure is that once you have your parts written, you can rearrange your song quickly and easily.
But then again, if you really want to write songs that stand out through the test of time I would stick with this simple songwriters formula. If you don't get to it quickly enough, your song will appear boring.
