And here's a deep one: If you were going to pick the lyrics to one of your songs to have inscribed on your tombstone, which one would you pick? If you HAD to pick?
One more: Do you think you can remember every song you ever wrote? Not like all the words, but if someone was playing the melody on a piano, you could recognize it as one of yours? Even going all the way back to your earliest songwriting days?
Ok ok just one more: Are you registered on BMI or ASCAP as just a songwriter, or are you registered as a publisher as well? I listened to a lecture on music business and he suggested since we (as music students) are self-publishing our own work, we could register as both. I ask because I believe you've also done a fair amount of self-publishing.
