Songwriting doesn't always come easy, that's why there are a ton of singers out there who don't write their own lyrics.

Here are a few quotes from some of your fave pop-rock acts on songwriting and makin' music.

~ Anthony Kiedis, Red Hot Chili Peppers.

1 "It's unfashionable to admit, but playing music makes us happy and makes us smile."
~ Hoobastank's Chris Hesse.

1 "I didn't think anything we did was spectacular. I remember we thought, 'Let's just write some scary music.'"
~ Ozzy Osbourne, on the old days with his band Black Sabbath.

1 "I usually like to make really dramatic songs [that are] dynamic from part to part - a lot of jumping from really quiet to really loud."

1 "We've always just gotten up there and played. We don't have any dancers, we don't have all that stuff going on, we just get up there and play."

    “Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
