Thread Name: What makes a person a good songwriter?
Subject: RE: What makes a person a good songwriter?
I agree with previous comments about alcohol level being significant, but you don't need drugs, which semed to be compusory in the seventies.

Also agree with the post that says a good tune will sometimes compensate for crap lyrics - that old saying:-

"If you have nothing to say then sing it"

That famous Rod Stewart classic:-

"He took her up to his high rise a-part-ment
And there he tod her exactly what his heart meant"

They don't do them like that any more!
