Chris Martin on Writing Hit Songs

from the Howard Stern Show this week…

Howard: “The song CLOCKS, was that another 10-minute thought process (to create)?”

Chris: “15 minutes actually.”

Howard: “15? I bet you that aggravates a lot of people.”

Chris: “You’re only focusing on the 3 songs that have been hits. You’re not talking about the 7,000 that no one has ever heard.”

(keep working on your 7000, folks)
