Tags: Put, Sad  ✍ Author: Rick Danko

So writing a song is much harder than doing a classical piece for me, because in a classical piece, I can just let the mood dictate what's going to happen.

Tags: Happen, Writing  ✍ Author: Glenn Danzig

Tags: Often, Writing  ✍ Author: Steve Earle

Tags: Nation, National  ✍ Author: Friedrich Ebert

The one album I can't live without is called 'Cumbolo' by a band called Culture. Every song on their album is deep, but there's one in particular called 'This Train.' I have a tattoo of the lyrics on my left arm.

Tags: Men, Tell  ✍ Author: Paloma Faith

When I did '1,2,3,4' on 'Sesame Street' they'd rewritten the song and made it about counting. At first, I balked. I was like, 'Counting to four? That's where we're going with this?' Then they sent me appearances by other people like James Blunt doing 'You're Beautiful' as 'My Triangle.'

Tags: Beautiful, Four  ✍ Author: Feist

When I first played '1234' it was on stage in San Francisco at some kind of, like, sticky-floored club. And it felt like a punk song. I mean it's ridiculous to say that now, but it had that kind of, like, piercing straight melody. And then this fist-pumping ending, you know that pa-dap-pada.

Tags: Mean, Punk  ✍ Author: Feist

A cabaret song has got to be written - for the middle voice, ideally - because you've got to hear the wit of the words. And a cabaret song gives the singer room to act, more even than an opera singer.

I don't want to have a song like 'My Humps' and it be sagging down, so I pay attention to that area. A lot.

But I'm not adverse to the idea of Torch Song as a musical. It would just be different. Because the play will always be there exactly as it was, and in a musical you could tell a lot of the story through songs.

Tags: Idea, Tell  ✍ Author: Harvey Fierstein

In Torch Song, I did that character almost non-stop from 1978 until I made the movie in 1987. Then I had some failure, which also colors how you react to doing other things.

With every song that I write, I compare it to the Beatles. The thing is, they only got there before me. If I'd been born at the same time as John Lennon, I'd have been up there.

Tags: Time, Write  ✍ Author: Noel Gallagher

Every song that I play I wrote by myself.

I don't much like 'Wonderwall,' but the effect that song has on people, I can't deny it.

Tags: Deny, Effect  ✍ Author: Noel Gallagher

Tags: Family, Friends  ✍ Author: Peter Gallagher

Each song is a lifetime, it begins and ends, and there's a journey taken within the songs.

Tags: Journey, Within  ✍ Author: Leif Garrett

I had written lyrics to a song called The Silent Extreme, which Alex later renamed Humans Being.

My best album is called In Search Of A Song. That was my best shot right there. My finest hour, as they say. I could listen to the whole thing all the way through. There's nothing really crammed into it.

Tags: Best, Whole  ✍ Author: Tom T. Hall

The best compliment I ever had is, one day I was in Nashville, some disc jockey said, Hey, that sounds like a Tom T. Hall song. Up until then there hadn't been any such thing.

Tags: Best, Said  ✍ Author: Tom T. Hall

It used to be that you'd have a song recorded by a major country artist and if it was a hit, you could buy a car. Now you can buy a dealership.

I can make a song up about anything: garbage, the weather, things in the news.

Tags: News, Weather  ✍ Author: Marvin Hamlisch

Let's say music is needed for only 43 seconds of film. You have to score it so it is an entity, so it won't bother anyone when it ends so quickly. Or if a song runs 2 minutes and 45 seconds, but the titles run a minute longer, you have to arrange that song so it doesn't get repetitious.

Tags: Film, Music  ✍ Author: Marvin Hamlisch

I continue to believe, contrary to the given wisdom, that it's more interesting to have an album - or, indeed, an individual song - which has variety rather than homogeneity.

Tags: Rather, Wisdom  ✍ Author: Peter Hammill

Whenever I heard the song of a bird and the answering call of its mate, I could visualize the notes in scale, all built up within my consciousness as a natural symphony.

Tags: Bird, Within  ✍ Author: William Christopher Handy

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

Tags: Bird, Nature  ✍ Author: Lou Holtz

But we used to go to flea markets and things, and look for old 78 records that had silly song titles.

Larry only ever wrote one song, and he wrote that with Tony Kaye, I think it was, from Yes.

Tags: Tony, Yes  ✍ Author: Neil Innes

If I'm focusing on playing and enjoying the song, then it always goes well. I get lost in the song, and the performance is so much better. If the focus becomes not making a mistake, then it just feels rigid to me.

Tags: Focus, Lost  ✍ Author: Marketa Irglova

I never set out to write a certain kind of song, I just play my guitar and see if I catch something.

Tags: Guitar, Write  ✍ Author: Chris Isaak

It's always interesting - how do you actually convey thought through song? We're used to the convention on stage. In film, we used to be used to it, and now sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. You need to be fresh and really look at the material.

Tags: Sometimes, Thought  ✍ Author: Hugh Jackman

A lot of times when songwriters get together and write a song... somebody will come in with a hook and a lot of times they come out with something that sounds a little crafty.

We're feminists. We're doing something that only guys are expected to do and doin' it right! At our concerts we'll do one hard-core rap song and then do one where we'll be real sexy.

'None of Your Business.' It's the only Salt-N-Pepa song that I regret.

For me, with the Blue Man Group, I got asked. It was for the Royal Variety Show, which was something I always wanted to be a part of. I'm really interested in things people don't necessarily expect. I did a pop song, but I did it in my own style.

Tags: Show, Wanted  ✍ Author: Katherine Jenkins

I went to a radio station on Long Island in 1982, and thank goodness for me, it was so new that there was no receptionist. So the DJ opened up his booth, and took my tape and listened to it and thought it was a hit song.

Tags: Thought, Took  ✍ Author: Jon Bon Jovi

By the time I got to record my first album, I was 26, I didn't need pen or paper - my memory had been trained just to listen to a song, think of the words, and lay them to tape.

Tags: Time, Words  ✍ Author: Jay-Z

You want to reach people, but you also want to reach them in the most authentic way. You now have a mass market and an audience that's listening, but they're in love with a song that means absolutely nothing to you.

It's very rare that a song falls from your mind complete.

Tags: Mind, Rare  ✍ Author: Alex Kapranos

I love accents; I would love to find more characters with a variety of vocal intonations. It creates a character. It's like you're singing a song. Some people find their character through walking or movement - for me, voice is one of the ways I find parts of the character.

Tags: Character, Love  ✍ Author: Stana Katic

I mean, I could just go round and use session musicians for every song, but I don't find that helps when it comes to setting up a band for live. Derrick has been with me for donkey's years.
