There was a draw at the battle of the bands so they issued a skill testing question to both teenage groups. “what comes first when you write a song, the melody or the lyric?” The first group answered the melody. The second group answered it doesn’t work that way. You could write either part first and then develop the other. There is no single method that is the correct way. There are no rules to making art, anything goes.
The first group won. The judges found their answer more succinct and professional.
