Thread Name: Origins: They Don't Write 'Em Like That Anymore
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: They don't write em like That anymore
Don`t know about the comparison to Lucille,but it`s also been remarked that it's a bit like Dr.Hooks - "Sylvias Mother" or whatever the song title is.
My song preceded that one.
It's one of the big problems of songwriting.
It's important to bounce new tunes of your mates - to ask them have they anything similar before - and almost impossible to have a tune which is absolutely unique and differs in every detail from every other song that was ever written.
Still !!!! - we try.
Cheers all .
