That’s not ego talking. It’s just true of any artist and any song that has that feeling of being familiar yet new. My acting teacher, Howard fine, said that phrase to me in relation to what is a hit, be it a hit piece of theater or a hit song. It’s so true. It’s like an old friend: you predict that the melody is going to go in a satisfying way. ”
