“I got those chords from Bach.”

Or whatever the hell it was he said.

Listen to the 30th Anniversary “Escape” interview

Color me shocked that “Who’s Crying Now” did not start life on the piano — and it’s in Am!

Also pleased to hear them all discuss the semi-classical and orchestral feel to the album (which I agree with), and Perry’s statement about the best creativity arising in the areas of greatest tension among them all — and how the triangle of tension among them seemed to create the best work, from them all trying to tug the rope in different directions. He’s right. Art arises from tension, and the greatest art springs forth from the greatest place of tension … provided the rope doesn’t pull apart.

Which it inevitably does. 🙂
