Re: What's most/least important in music
It has to feel good and have a vibe about it.
If it feels good, everything else has the potential to be irrelevant.
I was talking to a producer I know who's worked on a lot of high profile releases, and we were discussing how some songs sound so great, but if you break them down, they actually don't follow conventional wisdom of what should make a song sound great.
And if you look at music history since recording was invented, there are plenty of songs that sound great because they have full orchestra, 10 layers of guitars, etc, and other recordings that sound great with just an old acoustic guitar and an imperfect singer.
