There are certain power positions in your lyrics that can effect the entire meaning that you want to come across to your audience.
Okay, now let’s back it up a bit.
A power position is a place in your lyric verses that holds a lot of effect (possibly in meaning or in memory) to the people listening.
Think about it – where do you want your best home-hitting lyrics to be in your song? Buried in the middle?
The three most common power positions in music are:
- The first/opening line of a section
- The last/closing line of a section
- Extra lines out of the 4 line stanza
These areas grab the most attention to the listeners and make those the most memorable lyrics.
So, be sure to put your strongest or ear-catchy lyrics in those power positions.
