Hi There,

I suppose it would depend on the mood you would like to convey in the song. I'm not much of a songwriter, but there's the old cliche that says a "sad" song uses a minor key and a "happy" song uses a major key. If you want to get into modes there are many variations on that to fill all the moods in between. Just experiment and do what you feel.
