Thread Name: Art of Songwriting
Subject: RE: Art of Songwriting
I wanted to bring this thread back because of something a friend of mine told me, that is very similar to what Larry's father told him.

Howard is a novelist, and a musician, and a blessing. He said that he doesn't so much make things up, as write them down; that they come from some place far beyond himself.

I believe that sometimes, there are stories that beg to be told, just as songs beg to be written.
