Anatomy of Songs

  1. And this is how I will be writing songs from now on. There also needs to be one for 'Industrial' (drum beat—samples, distortion, and screaming—awkward ending).

    Every five years or so you can pull Pitbull out and put someone else in. I think it was Timbaland before Pitbull, and before that it was Ludacris. Maybe Skylar Gray was in there somewhere.

    Helping out at a community radio station, I've been exposed to far more country music than I wanted (ie any at all) and I've formed a hypothesis: country music is about a steady state. That is, the "plots" of country songs are always about a single emotional or personal condition, and they never change. It's the ultimate conservative music: "this is how it is, this is how it always has been, this is how it will always be". Not sure if the "story" songs, like the execrable Coward Of The County or The Gambler, fit into that pattern.

    I thought all classic rock songs had to do with small town happenings; hadn't noticed that 80's is the new Classic rock.
