Thread Name: song writing
Subject: RE: song writing
greg stephens Good songs can come out of indignation and genuine ire. Like Dylan saying "You've really got a nerve". We don't need to know whether he was talking to Lomax or whoever because we know the target isn't us. Were your songwriters playing at insulting or was there an edge there? I guess the knowledge that they are gunning for each other helps you sit there as an observer rather than engage. I have heard a game on a radio quiz show called "Yawn Tennis" based on insults and the McEnroes of this world. Can be funny in the right hands.
