Quotes: Songwriting

By

“I don’t know how to write songs. But I do know how NOT to write songs. I know how to screw it up. So I spend my time removing the things that get in the way of it. The impediments that block it. The negative things, the attitudinal things. And since I know how to screw it up, I know how NOT to. Just don’t do those things that get in the way of it, and then it can start.” – Lou Reed
