I'm sure each of us can come up with one or more songs that sounds like nails on a chalkboard by the end of the holiday season. On the flipside, we all have a handful of songs that never get old. Year after year we play them and share them with friends and family. Have you focused your efforts on writing a seasonal specific song? If not, you may be missing out on a lucritive opportunity to gain play time.

"The great thing about doing these kind of songs is there is still room for you to get your song on the yearly rotation list. I’m not saying you’re going to record the biggest Christmas song ever and get rich (although it is possible, I won’t count you out), but it is possible to get a slice of the pie."
