Why Do You Ask About “Lyrics” and “Music”?

Though required, this is mostly a formality.

When registering songs, you are required to denote whether a songwriter contributed to the lyrics (author), music (composer), or both. You do not need to break down lyrics and music by percent.

Note: we are unable to register any songs that are LYRICS ONLY. All songs are required to have a musical component. The melody is included in this, so if the song is acapella, that counts as the musical component.
