on: January 09, 2014, 22:51:56
What makes a great songwriter?  What separates the best from the good songwriters?  :)

I think a songwriter that writes a  Lasting song  one that  doesnt   fade away whilst in the charts is
acknowledged as a great songwriter. there are those that write commercially & those that write with a gut feeling. A lyric has to capture the listener  & sometimes a marraige of both lyrics & music  gel together to make a song  that becomes a classic.   Frank Sinatra  nevered covered a Lennon or Mccartney  song  but  sang something  by George Harrison    is that amazing or what?

One observation I have about songwriters is that we all seem such sensitive souls

Even with the friends that I have met online we all seen to love much more and hurt much more - it's that 'life' experience that feeds the machine

I think underneath even the most aggressive soul there is a vulnerable animal in there

I can never write a song if I try - the songs that stay with me write themselves

One thing I have grown to appreciate more is that you really can destroy someone with negativity about their creation - I've said if before but it's a miracle we all have this blessed gift

Hope everyone's well tonight

thanks, Kaf, nice thoughts

i was hit by a car from behind at a traffic light this morning, hard impact
so hard, it made my car hit the car in front of me in line for the traffic light
happens in a second

my car is ruined, and i am unscratched,
but it made me appreciate our songwriting friendships even more
and songwriting in general


but perhaps that sounds weird

but I am a Kitcheneer and i am alive

that sort of feeling, it feels good  8) 8) 8)


me, myself, and Pie

Great to read so many replies.

I loved to read your response Andy! I agree totally - many songwriters are truly sensitive souls!  I wonder do they feel the pain of disappointment more than most?   I agree, clearly, some of the most aggressive people I have met are complex souls who have a deeply emotional side!

I once read that the best songwriters are not afraid to dig deep and then report back to the world about their most intimate thoughts.  They communicate their hopes and fears.  I think it can be both therapeutic for writers to go within but also a little frightening to go too far because it does hurt to analyse some of your darkest thoughts.  Lennon clearly did this in his song 'Mother'.  Aren't we all fascinated to hear such songs almost as if the writer goes where some fear to tread?  I think it can be incredibly brave to analyse events in a life that inspire such songs. I admire the writers who bare their souls!  :)

Wow!  Absolutely  incredible reading Kafz  post.....I can relate to every word &   Couldnt have put it better. I have been inspired by sensitive songs & write from my heart & how it comes out I dont  censor what I feel & Sometimes I feel like an alien......but there you have it(maybe I am)
                                  Dutch  Thank God you are ok!!!!!   a cars a car?  but  life really is too short & I  am both
shocked  &  glad you came out of it ok.......Phew!
              Wicked deeds   Yes  Lennon. (full stop)  Mother &  the song he wrote to  mccartney  (Dont remember the title) the one where he wrote:  The only good thing you did  was: Yesterday Powerful  & gets you thinking..
