Listen Closer To Your Own Song

I had a revelation today. Shakespeare wrote "To Thine Own Self Be True". This, I would say, is never truer than with songwriters. We need to take our own medicine better!

Many times I have written songs I only fully understood years later, or had a bigger picture perception of the subject matter. Funny, our subconscious minds sometimes contain stuff only to be revealed in the future. 

Here's my suggestion:
  • Take a song you particularly like to sing or hear someone else sing, maybe you're not really sure why. It could even be a song someone else has written... but somehow you've made it your own.
  • Listen to it freshly, like it contained some secret wisdom or insight you really need.
