Thread Name: Songwriting Under Pressure
Subject: Songwriting Under Pressure
I haven't written a song in a quite a while. So, here's the scoop.... I joined songwriting group recently. And two days ago they gave me the homework. By next Sunday, they said, have a new song ready....a song with a story to it. That's the homework. A song with a story to it.

So this morning I wrote a whole ballad with 14 verses, and a singalong chorus to boot!

What is it about Pressure that gets me to writing it down, to starting and finishing a whole song in a couple of hours?
