I've had the problem when writing with vocalists who I consider to be great singers; it's much more difficult to tell if you have actually written anything any of any worth, because it's hard to listen past the vibe and sheen of a great delivery.
I suppose my lack of focus on the lyric is down to my own predilections.
I didn’t realize anything was eluding me. But thanks for putting me straight on that one mate. It’s always good to know there’s some experienced pros out there that can give some of us kids a bit of sound advice.
