I’ve got a rule that if I hear the same song on the radio three times in reasonably quick succession, that’s a sign I should be writing about it.

I don’t mean on the Top 40 radio stations the kids listen to. After all, they only play about 6 songs an hour and in the next hour they play the same six songs again, just in a slightly different order.

Without words, it’s just a nice tune. Add words — now you’ve got a song. And songs can change your world. I write about some that changed mine.
