Good songs like good characters in a book, or a great and intriguing plot stay with us. Sometimes I think we happen on a song or a book or even a painting at just the right time and that's why it resonates with us and the person next to us couldn't care less about it.
I'm writing a new series of books and one of the characters is a lyricist. That means I've been writing my own song lyrics that I hope will speak to someone. Of course I hope the whole book does too, but writing lyrics is a different skill. It's fun to do new things especially as I've been writing a long time now.
When Any Way You Build It releases in April It will be my 12th novel, I've had another two pieces in anthologies...that's a lot of novel writing so song writing that's a refreshing change.
Here's one of my favourite songs for you. It's not really a classic but it's a classic at our house. The other week I met my husband in town for lunch and this was playing at the burger joint so I guess it is a classic for someone else as well
