In the Eagles documentary Glenn Frey said that he learned how to write songs by listening how his below neighbour Jackson Browne was working on "Doctor, my eyes" He also said that he spoke about the song writing process to his friend JD Souther and expressed how afraid he was that he would be writing bad songs. At which Souther went "Oh you WILL be writing bad songs, it's all part of the learning curve." But even song writers who are known for their stellar output can produce some real stinkers, let's name them and I'll start with the fab four. (I can't find any of their songs on Youtube anymore...) Paul's stinker is without a doubt "Rocky Raccoon" quite what the object was behind the writing of that song is a mystery but with lyrics like "Her name was McGill but she called herself Lil but everybody knew her as Nancy" I wonder if Macca himself knew. Now John's stinker which also was on the White Album DOES have a clear storyline but John sang it in a "Okay-since-it-HAS-to-be-done" kinda voice as if he knew "The continuing story of Bungalow Bill" was his biggest stinker.
