The Linkage Volume III, 2011

Doug Robertson critiquing the Bruno Mars Song Marry You:

When writing any tune, you have to ask yourself a lot of questions. Questions like: “Is this going to add anything worthwhile to the already overflowing pool of recorded music?”, “What do all these buttons do?” and “Should I have a chicken or a ham sandwich for lunch?” But of all the possible questions the most important one is surely “Will my gran like this?” If the answer is “Yes,” then not only do you need to start completely from scratch, but you also need to take a long hard look in the mirror and think about exactly what the hell you think you’re doing with your life. Bruno, I will happily supply the mirror.
