Are there any topics that you are reluctant to write about?

I would say nothing is taboo. As an artist you can create whatever you wish. Whether it is in good taste and therefore whether it will be popular is another question but I would say
it is not even anything to do with artists having some kind of special privilege, it is your right as a free human being to create what you will.  :)

Exactly. Taboos are an artificial contrivance. Obviously, if you're singing hateful stuff then you're going to get called out on it and if it breaks local laws in terms of incitement you could end up in court, so be careful. Similarly, if your creation is libellous, breaks copyright, etc same thing.

But, remember someone somewhere will have already written a song about every subject somebody else thinks of as a taboo...it's open season on subject matter in songwriting, always has been...

Writing a song praising Derby County is totally off limits for me. Totally taboo. :)
