Song selling takes place when a singer-songwriter earns money in exchange for the rights to use his or her original music, often to a (more) famous, or up-and-coming, recording artist.

If a singer-songwriter has written a catchy song but seems to fall short on vocal or instrumental ability, a listener might say, "you should sell your song." Hearing this can be extremely disheartening for singer-songwriters, especially those who are still developing their talents, or have not yet enjoyed their fifteen minutes of fame.
Why does song selling even exist? Any band or singer who is worth their weight can write their own songs.

During the coldest months of the year, apartment landlords often advise tenants to leave their faucets on a steady drip, which over an eight hour period may add up to a mere five cents in water costs.
Bobby didn't want to leave his faucets on steady drip, thinking he'd have a lower water bill this winter. The pipes at his apartment burst open, and now his landlord is holding him responsible for the damages.
