You should write songs about what you feel, but you can’t write in such a way like it’s a diary entry. You should write it in a way that people understand in their lives.
I have all these revelations as I’m writing. Each song is like a chapter of my diary.
I organise my work in the form of a daily diary. Each chapter is strictly chronological but is also monothematic – say, a war, a set of peace negotiations, a joust.
Like a lot of people, I read ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ again and again and again when I was growing up – I’m still completely felled by what an astounding book it is. And as a teenager, I did a lot of reading about concentration camps and the vast horrors of the war.
I’ve kept a diary since I was 11.
People always make me uncomfortable when they ask me: ‘Who’s this song about?’ I feel like I let you read my diary and now we have to have a conversation about it! I already let you read it, let’s just leave it at that.
I think the two are kind of synonymous for me; songwriting is like my form of diary making. It’s how I process the world. Without doing that, I feel kind of lost. The characters that I play often come out in the songs and the challenges that they face, albeit in an abstract way.
Anne Frank’s diary made a very big impression on me at age 12 or so.
Early in my life, without any supporting evidence, I fretted over what I believed was my fate: accidentally becoming an international pop star. The pages of my diary were filled with hypothetical ethical dilemmas.
One of the few things that will remain of this time is what artists are doing. They are the journal and the diary of our time.
I don’t want to overplay the diary’s significance, but it’s a really helpful batting aid. It’s not an obsession because I don’t spend more than 10 or 20 minutes writing a day – and not necessarily every day. I might write in it three days in a row and then not the next four. It depends on the situation.
A lot of music is like a diary for me.
To be a good researcher is to be a good detective, and I enjoy ferreting out tidbits of information. For a diary book like ‘A Coal Miner‘s Bride,’ newspapers come in handy for small everyday details such as weather reports.
My music is like a diary. I use every experience.
I maintained a diary when I was a child and had all the happenings jotted down.
I like to dabble in different things, but music is my first love. It connects to me in a way my side projects don’t because it’s so personal. I write the words. Music is like my diary. It’s my therapy.
When Landon Carter, a Virginia plantation owner, read the Declaration of Independence two days after it was issued, he wondered whether its ringing affirmation of equality meant that slaves must be freed. If so, he confided to his diary, ‘You must send them out of the country, or they must steal for their support.’
My desperation for UKIP to do well meant that I really packed the diary and the day in a way that, frankly, wasn’t very bright.
I did not find that writing a diary with a lead male character differed in any essential way from writing one with a female character. They all had the same challenges in terms of attempting to establish an identity, coping with loneliness, friendships, relationships.
I’ve come to realize that you live on through recordings; they’re like a musical diary, a window into somebody’s soul.
When I first started working on ‘Secret Diary,’ I definitely felt like I needed to shape up. The idea of being in my knickers on TV was a great incentive! Now I try to eat right, and I go to Bikram yoga three or four times a week. I have my ‘naughty‘ days, and I indulge in pizza and cake, but so what!
The film of tomorrow appears to me as even more personal than an individual and autobiographical novel, like a confession, or a diary.
