Thanks for sharing this list of tips. It's a great reference for writing and revising lyrics.

I think Eventually is a great song. I first heard it when I started lurking around here last spring, and I still catch myself humming the chorus from time to time. Great songs touch people and stick with them. Eventually follows some of the most important tips listed above: 2 (Genuine Idea), 18 (Move People)and 34 (Melody is King.)These seem to me to be some of the most important - and difficult - things to get right.
