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

Though required, this is mostly a formality.

When adding songs into your account, you must denote whether a songwriter contributed to the lyrics (author), music (composer), or both. However, you do not need to break down lyrics and music by percent.

Please note that 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.
