There's nothing like a good cheating song to make me want to run home to be with my wife.
Steven Curtis Chapman
Music should be your escape.
It was my 16th birthday - my mom and dad gave me my Goya classical guitar that day. I sat down, wrote this song, and I just knew that that was the only thing I could ever really do - write songs and sing them to people.
True music must repeat the thought and inspirations of the people and the time.
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
Times were changing. Clothes were changing. Morals were changing. We went from romantic loves songs like I used to do to rock 'n roll. Now that has changed to rap. So, there's always a new generation with new music.

Christian Nestell Bovee
Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it.
I asked my daughter when she was 16, What's the buzz on the street with the kids? She's going, to be honest, Dad, most of my friends aren't into Kiss. But they've all been told that it's the greatest show on Earth.
If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.
Richard M. Nixon
The real art of conducting consists in transitions.
In music the passions enjoy themselves.
Music happens to be an art form that transcends language.
Sometimes I'll have sections that I'm not quite sure how they fit in the puzzle of a tune, they'll get moved around; what I think was originally a verse ends up becoming the chorus, or what's an intro gets dropped as a hook, things get shifted around a lot.
All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.
