(05-23-2003) Bono On Songwriting - NMC *


On Wednesday, May 22nd, U2 took home the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Song Collection. Never one to mince words, Bono offered up some insight on how he writes those gorgeous and uplifting lyrics:

"They don't know how hard it is starting at a blank page. You're living in Ireland, it's raining, it's always raining, that's where the melanchololy, the angst all comes from….No, that's not true. You sit in a big house in the south of France, paid for by a large, extensive back catalogue, you look out the window and go 'It's a beautiful day!'"
