1st thought: The song reminded me of this youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV2s0UIPOQY) video.

That's because what you are talking about at this point isn't writing a pop song; you are talking about making a popular song. Writing pop music is incredibly easy, but popular music isn't about the...
