I hear nothing much that isn't retreads of what has gone before. Some of it good but much of it mundane. I see a lot of the new groups actually. Jools Holland's show is great for that. I watched Austin City Limits last night. A great REM concert (one of the last great bands) and they were followed by The National and Band of Horses (two of the top new alt rock bands) ...  
So I had to watch a video of "It's the End of the World" thanks to you bringing up REM...I've always really liked that song and always will.

I hate when that happens.  crying

I just wrote a really long post and lost it on my smarter than me phone. Oh well.
Whatever it was Danny, I'll bet it was good!

   I have ran into Joe Ely around the Austin area a few times. One time we talked about writing songs and he said he always has a note pad or paper and pen. Then he writes down all kinds of notes and full verses etc.
    Then he will pull them all out while working on a song, and draw from all the stuff he jotted down. I've heard of other songwriters doing the same.
    Now when I have some words to a song I stop, find a pen and paper and write it down.

Oh yeah, I have about a zillion notebooks, loose pages, scraps of paper with verses, a chorus, often one or two lines. I keep thinking I need a small portable battery operated recorder to catch these things that come when I can't write them down. Besides that captures the tune, as well.

According to his addled memory, Keef woke up in a stupor one night with the riff for satisfaction going thru his brain.  He recorded it on a portable recorder and forgot about it.  One day he hit play, and voila.
