GUEST,harvey andrews Songwriter's Songwriters (91* d) RE: Songwriter's Songwriters 22 Jun 05


I always use Steve Goodman's "Hotel Room" to show how even the most mundane of subjects can make a song that works. I just see him in the room after the gig deciding as an exercise to write about what he sees. We've all been in that room but never thought of it as a song.He did, and that's what made him so good. Look around, write what you see. Not a bad exercise to learn a craft!
