Does anyone have any articles or know of any interviews where a great songwriter has been asked how he/she wrote a great song? Like someone asking Paul McCartney how he wrote Hey Jude, or someone asking James Taylor how he wrote Fire And Rain. You see, as an architecture student, I spend some of my time learning about how the great architects conceived their great buildings, what the though processes were that they went through. Now I've learned a lot of this can be read by analyzing their buildings closely, but it becomes a lot easier to do with a professor asking you the right questions to get the right answers. Meanwhile, I may spend weeks analyzing an incredible song like Baba O'Reily, and come no closer to understanding how Pete Townshend wrote that masterpiece, only how it goes. So I want to know... How do you guys think great songwriters write great songs? Do you have any examples of interviews or articles where a great songwriter talks about the process behind writing a great song? What are their approaches?
Has anybody ever heard of these guys? I tried searching for a thread and didn't see any results come up so I figured I'd create one. Fans of Kamelot may be familiar with these guys since Kamelot's new vocalist, Tommy Karevik, is also the vocalist of Seventh Wonder. They are a 5-piece Prog Metal outfit from Stockholm Sweden. Up til now, they've released four albums and are currently in the studio working on a fifth. They will also be one of the headlining acts at next years Prog Power Festival in Atlanta, GA and will perform their concept album Mercy Falls in it's entirety. For more information, you can go to http://en.wikipedia..../Seventh_Wonder for a brief history of the band. Recommended albums would be both Mercy Falls and The Great Escape http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sRDa-xTfwg. http://www.metal-archives.com/images/7/7/6/6/7766_photo.jpg?2559
