Hit Songs Deconstructed has announced the launch of a new weekly music chart. “We launched the charts to provide songwriters, producers and music industry professionals with a unique and timely snapshot of today’s hit songwriting characteristics and trends,” explains David Penn, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Hit Songs Deconstructed. Rather than focusing on individual rankings, their Music Charts track the characteristics of the songs that are currently topping the Billboard Hot 100. These include lyrical themes, instrumentation, first chorus occurrence, intro length, sub-genres, lead vocal gender, song titles and more. The Music Charts are published weekly and are free of charge at http://hitsongsdeconstructed.com.
