I came across this link which says Johnny Borrell has written songs using a Ouija Board
Any song writers on here have any strange or unusual way of writing their stuff?
I *KNEW* he dabbled in the black arts.
It's the only possible explanation.
I throw one leg over my head, smear my ass with fish paste and masturbate furiously out the window while hopping up and down.
Focuses the creative juice.
That would explain the slight fishy smell in the studio when you guys were in then...
I used to go to a weird little bar with my guitarist, order a calypso coffee, and get stuck in.
Nothing we ever wrote there made it to the stage, so perhaps it's not the best example.
I mostly write new stuff at work.
pete griffin type 'grinds my gears'-esque ramblings in a -29degree freezer.

EEUUUGGGGGHHHHH Pete, Blueroom doesn't even HAVE a window!
i usually write songs by using magic
I write by listening to a song I like then trying to make something up using the same tempo, chords, melody and song structure with words pulled from a rhyming dictionary.
Do you have a poetry writing ritual Gerard?
I sniff felt tips and let rip (blue works best).
I have to wait til after midnight, when I'm preferably drunk and feelin proper maudlin and sorry for myself.
