"When you’re happy, you have no need to become introspective and exorcise whatever it is — there’s nothing to exorcise, obviously, you don’t want to ‘exorcise’ happiness. When you’re depressed or in some state of downward mobility, then you become introspective, or one could pretend to become introspective, and therefore you have something that you want to get rid of, and vent your spleen upon the paper, and so forth. So it’s just a lot easier, I mean…it’s not easy for me to write songs about things that are incredibly joyous…it’s got a lot to do with the school of music that I’ve been involved with I guess, as well."
