The dread of composing a BAD song.

I'm just a beginner at composing music. I've written, or composed about 5 songs so far, and just one song I consider special. It's the slow song I have a thread on here right now.

My latest song I realized was neither special nor very good, about average, perhaps bad in other people's opinions. I realized it last night and tried to finish it as quick as possible to get to my next one. I might put it up on this forum soon.

I'm getting the feeling that it's really like that for most composers. You work hard for all your pieces, but only really for a small percentage, everything falls into place and the end result is a good song.

I don't know what your definition of a good song is, mine is probably more restrictive than others, but it's far more than just sounding good to my ears. The best songs touch you deep inside, to your inner core. It's where you listen to it and say, Hey, that's me, this song is about me.

Well, anyway, please give me your input but, most of what we compose is going to be average, meh, but there are going to be that special few that make you realize just why your doing this at all.

Any input?
