"At one moment in time I realized it was stupid to not appreciate pop music as the highest and most pleasurable form of songwriting, on many levels. It is sooooo difficult to write a good pop song. It’s actually incredibly difficult. It’s easier to write a mournful ballad, in my opinion. It was at that point that I think I lost all of my musical inhibitions and decided that if it makes me dance or sing along then I love it and I don’t care what it is."
