How to write a song and other mysteries

Measure for measure, the songwriting blog from the New York Times has a new entry. This one is called Catch and Release by Peter Holsapple.

He talks about his process of writing a song, which includes watching TV with the sound off. Included in his post are a couple samples of his work. I didn’t find it all that helpful.

However, if you scroll down to the entry by Suzanne Vega, two posts earlier, you’ll find a much deeper discussion, about being a two hit wonder, her song Luka and much more.
