And I don't think it gets any simpler than that.
Very well said!! Couldn't agree more.
A good song, is a good song.....simple. If it does something for me, then it doesn't matter who wrote it, performed it, played on it, what genre, top 40 or obscure tribal rythms......I'll still consider it 'a good song'.
