Use a non-lyrical vocal hook!
“What is that?” you ask.
You’ve probably have heard it a million of times in songs on the radio. It is when the lyrics (or lack-there-of) resorts to a sound. Like: ah, oo, oh, yeah, eh, ay, hey, etc. And perform that catchy repeated melody to those non-lyrical vocal sounds.
This helps a song writer by not only making the melody catchy and easy to sing, but breaks the language barrier allowing anyone that can make those sounds sing along.
You probably don’t want to include it on every song you write, but it is a great tool when you are in a pinch to make some ear-candy.
