Teaching myself the beauty of freedom

Does anybody else out there ever have trouble completely switching off ? I was listening to some of my tracks this evening, and realised the ones that caught my attention were written when I just let myself go and didn't think about people pleasing, selling, impressing, charting.... That is when I realised - only when something comes from the purest part of you can it touch the deepest part of somebody else. So - time to ask... Was the reason so many acts back in the 60s and 70s produced such stunning music is because they had more freedom through lack of technology/pressure to conform? That plus being very very relaxed ;). From now on, we should all just write what feels right, not what will receive the most airplay. Lets not let autotune and radio demands effect our ability to create beautiful music.
