The Definition Of A Great Song

As a songwriter I found myself agreeing with something Tommy Walker said about writing songs. Here's his quote from

"Well, just to plug Chris Tomlin, it's not easy to write an incredible song that's also simple. He is so good at what he does, and I totally give him props for that. As to whether the song is simple or difficult to play, who gives a rip if it's hard to play when no one wants to hear it anyway? A great songwriter knows how to write a melody that makes you want to push the repeat button. That's the definition of a great song."
