    Or "I never get to sing this song.  You wouldn't either, if you had the option I have."


    As a songwriting team, of course their influence overlaps, but I have heard them say that the process is often quite linear.  One person starts a song and the other fills in the blanks, or makes suggestions.


    I think I have heard Dave say that he wrote "The Way It Will Be" a,d "Elvis Presley Blues."  What else?


    (Maybe there should be a "misc" forum section)

    I think "Knuckleball Catcher" feels like one Dave might have started, but I have no idea.
