Hey Joe,

Glad you like my tips, I hope they help more JPFers strengthen their craft and REwrite stronger songs. Great songs are Co-Re-written.
"Born Again Barbie" sounds hilarious, do you have a link to it I'd like to listen

Write On,

And then everything fell together almost instantaneously. It does work--and you get a good product out of it.
