A great song is like a gift. Songwriters often say that their best work seems to arise in a flash, as though broadcast through them from somewhere else.
Once a song is out in the world, it lives its own life. It means different things to different people in different places and times.
A great song has a life of its own. New Directions in Music Song Remains the Same tells the story of that life, of the people who made it and the places that it went. Through the songs and the memories, it tells stories about each of us as well.
