Quote of the day: SONGWRITING

SONGWRITING

There’s this sadness about [Katy Perry’s hit song “Teenage Dream”], where you feel young listening to it, but you feel impermanence at the same time. When I put that song on, I’m as moved as I am by anything by David Bowie, by Fleetwood Mac, by Neil Young. It lets you feel something you didn’t know you needed to feel. There’s something holy about it.

–Lorde, interviewed by Jonah Weiner in the New York Times Magazine
