Thread Name: What makes a person a good songwriter?
Subject: RE: What makes a person a good songwriter?
Really nice Jerry

That reminds me of a lady who I see each time I visit my mother. She is in the same boat as that lady.

What is interesting, is last year when my father passed away, I asked my mother if she would like a night of music at the home in remembrance of my father. She said yes. I got a skiffle band to go in, because I only wanted happy music.

Some of the people there could hardly move or speak, but we gave them all a table mat and they held them and tapped the tables to the rhythm. One lady who looked totally vacant and didn't move all night except for mouthing the songs. Afterwards I went up to her and asked her if she enjoyed it, and she looked at me and mouthed "yes thankyou"
