Your songs tell stories of all sorts. How do you 'get into character' for each song? Surely you're middle name isn't danger (Game Over) and your life isn't a hopeless mess (Sagittarius)? :-)
I confess, my middle name is Keith - but I am a Sagittarius!
Avoiding french fries for lunch (so I don't clear my throat from the grease) is about the only preparation I take. Oftentimes I'll have just written the lyrics and/or melody right before recording, so the first few takes are an exploration. With any luck, I land on something that furthers the emotion of the song. If not, I try again the next day!
With lyrics covering many topics, e.g., criminality (Game Over), cheating bastards (Two) & romance (Drive You Home), I'm curious if any particular song is more about "you" than others?Color Theory responded on 05/03/2012 Next question
