Hit Song Deconstructions

Discover the patterns behind todays hits!

The Hit Song Deconstructions provide unparalleled analysis of today's hits.

Each deconstruction breaks down a current hit to its foundational building blocks and pulls back the curtain on the patterns and science behind how the song was written, produced and arranged.  

Leaving no stone unturned, everything is presented in a clear and concise manner and is complimented with unique Hit Songs Deconstructed visualizations that can be used to assess your own songs for strengths and weaknesses as well.

Among them are the HSD melodic parts tables and graphs, rhyme scheme tables, narrative structure tables, energy graphs, and more.

Each report is published in six segments every two weeks, and analyze:

  • Structure, Genres and Sub-Genre Fusion
  • Instruments and Arrangement
  • Vocal Melody and Vocal Production
  • Energy and Dynamics
  • Rhymes and Lyrics
  • Hooks, Prosody and Standout Factors

By reading these deconstructions, you'll become privy to the same tools and techniques today's hitmakers are using. 

The insight you'll gain will take your craft to the next level, guaranteed.
