Q: Hey Jon! Just wondered... what comes first the melody or lyrics? all the best xx

A: Depends on the day of the week, whether it's raining or not, and how much you had to drink at the gig the night before. I get lyrics first sometimes, melody first most of the time, and then there are the rare times when I hear a melody and a lyric in my head out of nowhere. Those tend to be the best ones. How ya doin' btw? Jon
