Bret Michaels Says Party Songs Are "Tough" to Write

October 15, 2018

Bret Michaels says people always assume that a song like "Nothin' But a Good Time" is easier to write than something emotional like "Every Rose Has Its Thorn". But it turns out  the "good-time party songs" are the toughest to write.

He says, quote, "When you're partying and having a good time, there's no emotion in you that says, 'Let's sit down right now and write a song.' But [when] you have something break your heart, those moments are the toughest moments in your life, but oddly enough, [they lead to the] most defined songs and easier songs to write because you have an exact emotion."
