I often think about just what draws me to Neil's songs. Lisa Germano mentioned during 7 World's that most/many of his songs where written for the black keys on the keyboards. That struck me since I have always preferred the "off" notes of those keys. Secondly, his lyrics often mention articles we see every day around the house (sinks/fridge/stairs/shed/window/KITCHEN/etc), perhaps it's a comfort thing.
Can others add to this in more depth and perhaps help gain a further appreciation for the man and his music???
