Ask Ginger

davidburr9: Hi Ginger... what comes first, the melody or the lyrics?

Ginger: First the theme, the subject matter, then a chorus line which turns into a melody. It doesn't always happen exactly like that, but most often that's how it goes.

horsesass: have you seen this from david byrne regarding spotify?

Ginger: Sadly, much as I love him, his view doesn't take in the bigger picture and only looks at things from a negative viewpoint. Surely is the solution he maintains doesn't exist?
