James Taylor / Carole King / NPR

Decent enough interview, but man do I love me a Two-Lane Blacktop mention. The discussion of how songs are written at the end was interesting, too. Many, many musicians have talked about the phenomena of songs 'coming out of the ether' to them. I remember an interview or stage banter or something of Trey of Phish talking about a conversation with Carlos Santana about there being a hose from the heavens that delivers songs. Being 'hosed' entered the Phish lexicon as describing a situation where long jams were particularly transcendent.
