5 J. D. Souther Quotes about Time

” I don’t have any particular methodology, to tell you the truth. ‘Silver Blue’ took exactly the amount of time to write that it takes to sing it, and ‘Prisoner in Disguise’ took about a year and a half. So you just never know. “

The first song I ever learned was the ‘Nessun Dorma’ from Puccini’s ‘Turandot.’ My father was a big band singer, so I used to hear him walking around the house singing standards all the time. “
