    Re: Songwriting

    I like this song, this artist, his story, and his songwriting philosophy. And he resembles Jeff Tweedy.

    Re: Songwriting

    American Songwriter interview with one of my favorite singer/songwriters -- Amos Lee ...

    http://www.americansongwriter.com/2013/10/amos-lee/

    What percentage of songs that you start do you finish?

    I think I probably finish 40 percent? I could probably calculate this precisely, but I have probably lost over 1,000 songs over the years to lost books, napkins, 4 track tapes, and computers. How many do I like? 2 percent after Iím done. Within 5 minutes of writing them? I like 100 percent. The liking diminishes pretty rapidly, but Iím OK with it all.

    Thanks for posting Karen - I'm going to get back in the habit of checking this site. FB is weirding me out these days.

    Hi there, rte100expat!

    Yeah, I've been busy elsewhere. Came to see if we were still alive here, and remembered what fun it was to post and read others' posts. Thanks for responding.

    Can't wait for the touring to begin. Last I saw the band live was 2013 (saw them 4 times that year.)

    I was listening to Sirius XM on my short commute to work today and this song came on:

    "This Must Be the Place" - Talking Heads

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFef...ial Video 1983

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/david-byrne-rock-master-of-multicultural-sound-the-rolling-stone-interview-19880421 4/21/88

    In the 69th paragraph the interviewer asks about my favorite lyrics (first two):

    this one: "Sing into my mouth"?
    I'd seen a picture of Eskimos singing. They'll sometimes sing into each other's mouths. I thought it was a most beautiful image.

    Or "You got a face with a view."
    It's romantic in the sense that romantic poets in the nineteenth century would write about a landscape. They'd write a whole poem about standing on the hill and looking out. I'm looking at her face and doing the same thing.

    And finally, from that song, "Cover up and say goodnight" and "Hit me on the head."
    [Laughs] When you fall in love, you feel like a missing piece of a puzzle that's been found. Plus, the epiphany of a love relationship is like being hit on the head, jolted into a different kind of a land.

    What does the parenthetical phrase in "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" refer to?
    We were deliberately playing instruments we weren't technically good at. Tina was playing guitar, Jerry [Harrison, the band's keyboardist] was playing the bass, and I was playing the keyboards. So our playing was very simple. We couldn't help but be naive.

    Excellent cover by The Lumineers:
