  • A Tribute to My Friend, Zeke | Jeanette Arsenault - Singer & Songwriter, Ontario, Canada
    demeanor Oh yes and I musn t forget his sense of humour and his encyclopaedic memory for music history One of my fave Zeke jokes which he told at every show Did you hear about the farmer whose wife ran away with the tractor salesman he got a John Deere letter And there were other perennial favourites like whenever he tuned up his fiddle he d pipe up with this is an ancient Chinese song called Tu Ning and when the show was a bit raggedy on the edges he d always say Let us know if we re getting too slick professional fer ya Oh and can t forget this one Did you hear about the guy who crossed a goat with a vacuum cleaner and got a kid that would clean his room And we would all laugh every time because he would always have that twinkle in his eye with every recounting He appreciated his audience and they knew it felt it and loved him back David Zeke Mazurek was a professional violinist for over 35 years He toured with or been a member of such internationally recognized groups and entertainers as Sylvia Tyson and Great Speckled Bird Stringband Prairie Oyster Willie P Bennett and Sneezy Waters Zeke performed on TV and radio in films and in clubs and concerts across Canada the US and Europe He released three CDs and a compilation CD of his work is in currently in production to be released in time for Christmas 2010 Yup There s a big hole in my musical heart Love thoughts prayers are with his wife Danyne their family Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Your message Archives Select Month January 2015 1 November 2014 1

  • Best Songwriting Quotes | Jeanette Arsenault - Singer & Songwriter, Ontario, Canada
    John Denver We must begin to make what I call conscious choices and to really recognize that we are all the same It s from that place in my heart that I write my songs Laura Nyro There are no limitations with a song To me a song is a little piece of art It can be whatever you like it to be You can write the simplest song and that s lovely or you can just write a song that is abstract art Jackson Browne It s not like I m looking to describe something that s only true of my own circumstances It s beyond It s way inside you know It s reaching inside to something that you have in common with many Van Morrison I write songs Then I record them And later maybe I perform them on stage That s what I do That s my job Simple I don t feel comfortable doing interviews My profession is music and writing songs I like to do it but I hate to talk about it Music is spiritual The music business is not Being famous was extremely disappointing for me When I became famous it was a complete drag and it is still a complete drag Billy Joel I consider myself to be an inept pianist a bad singer and a merely competent songwriter Randy Newman If getting on the radio was a major motivation I d be one of the worst writers of all time I admire people who do it and I think it s a nice way to work but I try to do the best I can and write what I like I don t worry about it Harry Nilsson It happens so quickly it seems like it s coming from somewhere else It s not It just means that you re in sync with yourself And whatever your goal is in terms of hearing a melody or a lyric the closer you get to it the faster it comes out and the easier it is to spit it out as it were Deborah Harry I really really like writing songs Capote wrote every day He said that s the only way you have to sit down every day and do it Something that s written out is okay but it s not always a clear indication of what a person means Little Richard I was washing dishes at the Greyhound bus station at the time and I said Awap bop a lup bop a wop bam boom take em out Bernie Taupin Captain Fantastic was the first album in history to enter the American album chart at number one We did it for a second time after that Now that s not a boast that s frightening The process of doing it was unique because I wrote the songs in the order they were recorded so it was written like a story Elton John It turned out so well because it was the first album that I could identify with in terms of lyrics Captain Fantastic It was passionate I could associate myself with every song It s a unique album in our history This was the story of us Curtains the lyrics to that are so beautiful because it sums up our friendship so much and our relationship Moby It just seems like musicians want to sell a few records and put out a perfume line and I think it s so sad that there are so many musicians who don t want to change the world Tom Petty You re dealing in magic it s this intangible thing that has to happen And to seek it out too much might not be a good idea Because you know it s very shy too But once you ve got the essence of them you can work songs and improve them You see if there s a better word or a better change David Byrne Often I don t know what the song means until it s finished Sometimes months later I don t think that s bad It implies that I don t know what I m doing but I think if you re able to follow your instincts then that s knowing what you re doing Jimmy Buffet You know as a writer I m more of a listener than a writer cuz if I hear something I will write it down And you find as a writer there are certain spots on the planet where you write better than others and I believe in that And New Orleans is one of them Angus Young I m sick to death of people saying we ve made 11 albums that sound exactly the same In fact we ve made 12 albums that sound exactly the same Barry Manilow I am nervous that the craft of songwriting is taking a nose dive And since I m a songwriter and I connect with an interpretative you know interpretation of a song I miss it I just miss it Carly Simon Sometimes my boyfriend would write the lyrics and I would write the melody and other times I would start from scratch Or sometimes I would take a local poem and put that to music I always sang standards because the songs I wrote for myself weren t as easy to sing Pete Seeger I write a song because I want to I think the moment you start writing it to make money you re starting to kill yourself artistically Robbie Robertson It would be nice to abandon the verse chorus bridge structure completely and make it so none of these things are definable Make up new names for them Instead of a bridge you can call it a highway or an overpass Music should never be harmless Sammy Cahn I don t write songs songs write me Jimmy Page My vocation is more in composition really than anything else building up harmonies using the guitar orchestrating the guitar like an army a guitar army Robert Plant The essence of my lyrics is the desire for peace and harmony That s all anyone has ever wanted How could it become outdated We are trying to communicate a fulfilled ideal I am a reflection of what I sing Sometimes I have to get serious because the things I ve been through are serious The way I see it rock n roll is folk music Paul Simon It s very helpful to start with something that s true If you start with something that s false you re always covering your tracks Something simple and true that has a lot of possibilities is a nice way to begin Melissa Manchester Everybody wants to write a hit song but in Nashville people want to write the best song which was my original intention as a singer songwriter James Taylor I started being a songwriter pretending I could do it and it turned out I could To be a musician especially a singer songwriter well you don t do that if you have a thriving social life You do it because there s an element of alienation in your life I wish I could say Oh that would be great to write a song about But what I m doing is assembling and minimally directing what is sort of unconsciously coming out It s not something I can direct or control I just end up being the first person to hear these songs That s what it feels like that I don t feel as though I write them Then there s a phase when you button it up and finish it But it all starts with a lightning strike A melody will suggest itself in the context of whatever I m playing and then the cadence will suggest words And those words don t come from a conscious place I typically will work on a lyric in a three ring binder On the right side I ll write the lyric and on the left side I put in alternate things Tracy Chapman Songwriting is a very mysterious process It feels like creating something from nothing It s something I don t feel like I really control Peter Townshend What I took back because of my exposure to the Jewish music of the 30s and the 40s in my upbringing with my father was that kind of theatrical songwriting It was always a part of my character This desire to make people laugh Songwriting is best It s the hardest finest tightest It also requires the most discipline Todd Rundgren I don t have the same restrictions that other people do because I never painted myself into a corner I ve always done things that didn t necessarily fit the form I ve never felt limited in that respect in terms of songwriting Linda Ronstadt I can draw with sound That s the most useful thing I learned in terms of what my craft is The arrangements were mine They were little lines and stuff that I had written myself And I was locked into this idea that vocals didn t count melodies didn t count songwriting craftsmanship didn t count The only thing that counted was high arching guitar solos John Fogerty For years I walked around with the phrase Green River because I had seen that on a soda fountain drink when I was probably 8 or 9 years old and I went Gee I like that Another one was Lodi which I thought sounded really cool I got this cheap little empty plastic notebook at my local drugstore and bought a little slab of filler paper and the very first title I wrote in it was Proud Mary I had no idea what that title meant Brian Wilson The idea of taking a song envisioning the overall sound in my head and then bringing the arrangement to life in the studio well that gives me satisfaction like nothing else My state of being has been elevated because I ve been exercising writing songs No masterpiece ever came overnight A person s masterpiece is something that you nurture along Cab Calloway You don t think it was because a white man wrote it a black man wrote it a green man wrote it What doesn t make a difference Carole King I m a songwriter first In my career I have never felt that my being a woman was an obstacle or an advantage I guess I ve been oblivious Sensitive humbug Everybody thinks I m sensitive There is a downside to having one of the biggest selling albums ever Bob Marley One good thing about music when it hits you feel no pain My music fights against the system that teaches to live and die Ann Wilson All the songs that were written for that album are just all our first sophomore songs So they re all from real life Very sweet and very innocent Willie Nelson I like myself better when I m writing regularly I was influenced a lot by those around me there was a lot of singing that went on in the cotton fields Prince I try not to repeat myself It s the hardest thing in the world to do there are only so many notes one human being can master One of the reasons we re going out on the road and why we re titling this tour as Musicology is because we want to bring that back We want to teach the kids and musicians of the future the art of song writing the art of real musicianship John Prine I just tried to come up with some honest songs What I was writing about was real plain stuff that I wasn t sure was going to be interesting to other people But I guess it was I ve never had any discipline whatsoever I just wait on a song like I was waiting for lightning to strike And eventually usually sometime around 3 in the morning I ll have a good idea By the time the sun comes up hopefully I ll have a decent song Ian Anderson Martin Dave and I get together and rough out a few songs and put them on cassettes for some reference With the actual music I m not interested in objectivity quite the opposite I want a solely and totally subjective experience A lot of pop music is about stealing pocket money from children Neil Young I don t force it If you don t have an idea and you don t hear anything going over and over in your head don t sit down and try to write a song You know go mow the lawn My songs speak for themselves Eddie Van Halen Everything comes to me while I m sitting on the pot toilet David Lee Roth had the idea that if you covered a successful song you were half way home C mon Van Halen doing Dancing in the Streets It was stupid I started feeling like I would rather bomb playing my own songs than be successful playing someone else s music Boudleaux Bryant As far as my creative urge is concerned I do sit down and write my own music I ll tell you a writer who I think is a genius Ray Stevens He comes up with some of the most fantastic novelty ideas Dolly Parton also writes well I like a lot of songs a lot of writers Felice Bryant The only style God has blessed us with is what people seem to like It doesn t bother me if a song doesn t get recorded because I feel somebody down the road maybe not even born yet has his name on it Janis Joplin I always wanted to be an artist whatever that was like other chicks want to be stewardesses Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers You can fill your life up with ideas and still go home lonely All you really have that really matters are feelings That s what music is to me Chrissie Hynde I ve done lots of songs for film soundtracks and things like that stuff I m not ashamed of but that doesn t represent my legacy with the Pretenders I think domesticity certainly doesn t make it easy to write you know because you ve got a lot of distractions and I think a writer is always looking for distractions Beck Originally the lyrics to Girl were really upbeat and then it didn t work for me somehow You need the dichotomy If you re doing something happy and light you need the shadows Grace Slick Through literacy you can begin to see the universe Through music you can reach anybody Between the two there is you unstoppable on White Rabbit I have lived her Alice s story and I admired it as a little girl I believe the White Rabbit represents her curiosity She has no idea how that chase is going to turn out I admire that when people have the guts to follow their hearts their curiosity Ric Ocasek I could never be a country person sitting around trees trying to write a song I would rather be in the middle of society whether it s growing or crumbling Steve Earle Townes van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I ll stand on Bob Dylan s coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that Townes Van Zandt I don t think you can ever do your best Doing your best is a process of trying to do your best Loretta Lynn I don t know what it s like for a book writer or a doctor or a teacher as they work to get established in their jobs But for a singer you ve got to continue to grow or else you re just like last night s cornbread stale and dry Syd Barrett I was sleeping in the woods one night after a gig we d played somewhere when I saw this girl appear before me That girl was Emily on how he wrote See Emily Play Chapter 24 that was from the I Ching there was someone around who was very into that most of the words came straight off that Lucifer Sam was another one it didn t mean much to me at the time but then three or four months later it came to mean a lot Mariah Carey A lot of people are singing about how screwed up the world is and I don t think that everybody wants to hear about that all the time Jimmy Webb I usually know what kind of song I m after I know what I m trying to do when I start I don t always get there But I try to visualize what it s actually going to be Lenny Kravitz I never sit down to write When I m moved I do it I just wait for it to come You just hear it I can t really describe writing It s in my head I don t think about the styles I write whatever comes out and I use whatever kind of instrumentation works for those songs A lot of people don t listen to the lyrics really A lot of people pretty much only listen to the chorus Kid Rock I ve just really been into melody and lyrics and songwriting Writing a rap to me is easy I could write a rap like that But writing songs and melodies and s t that s hopefully going to stick around for 30 40 years is f king hard If you have good songs and you re talented people will eventually come to your shows people will buy your music Axl Rose I write
