They don't write like this anymore
Time for my song of the week. I've recently been listening to Joni Mitchell and I saw a recent interview were she says she's blocked and can't write songs anymore.
She puts it down to the present time which she says is "unromantic and shallow" and she calls songs on the radio today little more than jingles around which commercials fit. I can't really argue with her as I don't see much soul and romanticism in recent music. Having said that I see this beginning to change and I'm more than happy to be convinced otherwise.
