Andrew Bird on Songwriting

I came across an excellent article written by Andrew Bird, multi-instrumentalist and champion whistler, whose music I've been listening to more of lately.  Here's a sample of his talents.




The article is part of a series from The New York Times blog called Measure to Measure.  The articles are written by accomplished songwriters on the art and craft of songwriting.  I haven't had a chance to read all of the post but the first couple by Andrew Bird were great.  He breezes through several different topics in this particular article.  The article reads more as an afterthought on the process of songwriting but given Bird's unique style and skill it makes for an enlightening read.  Here's a link to the Bird's post.  You can find the other songwriters' pieces there as well.
