California sunlight - sweet Calcutta rain - Honolulu starbright - the song remains the same.
That song, for me, is about drugs and alcohol and loss and love. It's about being proud of who you are, being proud of your situation and just being stoked that things are always going to get better or always gonna get worse and that's such a great thing. Every day is a new surprise.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
The history of a people is found in its songs
If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all.
There are more love songs than anything else. If songs could make you do something we'd all love one another.
I don't give a damn about The Missouri Waltz but I can't say it out loud because it's the song of Missouri. It's as bad as The Star-Spangled Banner so far as music is concerned.
I had wanted to say that my song was far too painful to sing.
Always keep a song in your heart - it's like karaoke for the voices in your head
I learned very early in life that: Without a song, the day would never end; without a friend, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend- without a song So I keep singing a song.
The song is ended / But the melody lingers on.
I'm a sensitive guy. If you are a woman and you're in any kind of emotional duress and you write a song about it, I'll buy you album.
I began to write more songs when I had more time, especially when we began to stop touring. Having Indian things so much in my head it was bound to come out.
It's a little gross to put yourself in every song. I mean, how interesting do people really think you are?
Never hate a song that's sold a half million copies.
