SONGWRITING

If you want to catch songs you gotta start thinking like one and making yourself an interesting place for them to land like birds or insects. Once you get two or three tunes together, wherever three or more are gathered, then others come. It’s like a line for a hot dog place, you know? And when there’s four people lined up on the sidewalk, some people will stop and get in line just ’cause there’s a line.

–Tom Waits, interviewed by Wyatt Mason in the New York Times’ T Magazine
