It doesn’t always have to be mind-bending and complex. Some of the biggest songs are simple melodies with a catchy lyric.
André 3000 wrote and produced 2003’s smash hit “Hey Ya!“, using no more than two words for the chorus- Hey and Ya. The song went on to reach #1 on the Billboard Top 40 chart, while André 3000 also took home top honors for “Best Urban/Alternative Performance” at the 46th Grammy Awards.
The same thing can be said of a painting, a poster, or any art:
Sometimes it’s the artist’s translation of the idea, more than the astonishing ability that went into its creation, that hits deepest.
