"There's Always a Better Song to Sing"

"We were talking about English songwriters: it's picking up on the mundane, the everyday things and putting them, into a different setting, the very, very ordinary feelings, emotions or details that, once in song, you hear them in a different way. Without something too poncey or pretentious I was thinking about pop artists as well, where they took the everyday objects and made them into art. I don't think it's that dissimilar."

The Guardian publishes excerpts of Daniel Rachel's Isle of Noises: Conversations with Great British Songwriters.
