How is writing pop songs such a weird thing? I don't understand that. Look at the songs he's writing: Since U Been Gone (break up song), It Feels Like Tonight (trying to win a girl back), Just Want You To Know (break-up song). Who decided that there's an age limit to when you can write pop songs about universal topics? I find any argument calling him weird for co-writing/co-producing current pop hits to be absolutely absurd. There is absolutely nothing weird about that.
This was a wonderful read. However, I hate the music this person makes on all levels. I didn't sense one shred of enjoyment while listening to this stream. Not even a hint of what you mentioned struck me.
