David Gates’ career has been marked by a wide variety of albums, including classics such as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Lullaby” and “The Song That I Would Have to Be in the Back of a Car With.”
However, the late singer and songwriter’s greatest hit, “The song I would be in a car in, the song that would make me feel that I am alone, is one that I still haven’t quite figured out,” Gates told Business Insider in an interview.
“I have been thinking a lot about this song,” Gates said.
“I have a lot of music that I have to sort through.
It’s one that really fascinates me, because it really resonates with people.
I don’t know if that’s a coincidence, but it seems to be very relevant.”
Gates started writing his first songs when he was a kid in the 1970s.
He started recording them in his bedroom in the middle of the night, and was inspired by the Beatles, and later Nirvana, to write a song with a certain rhythm that resonated with him.
Gates is a self-taught musician, but has never written a single song.
“It’s been a struggle to write one song because I’m not a songwriter.
I can’t play piano.
I’ve never been a song-writer,” Gates explained.”
But I do have a few ideas.
When I think about songs, I try to find something that is really good and that has some kind of rhythm and melody and that just has the power to go into the audience’s head and make them laugh and make you feel that there is something inside you that you just can’t understand.””
I was just playing around in my head, but I can only come up with a few songs that are really good.
So I just play around in a little bit and try to come up on something really good,” Gates continued.”
Sometimes when you’re trying to do something new, you might have a really good idea and you don’t have the time to actually write it down.
You have to think about it.
So that’s where the process came in.
I try not to write songs that I can do something with.
It might sound like it, but sometimes it’s just not going to work.”
When Gates first started recording, he had no idea what he was going to do with the music.
“At first I just thought that I was just going to make this album and get into a studio and record it,” Gates recalled.
“Then I started to really play around and try and make my own music.”
But the process got more complicated.
“A lot of times, you can’t do that,” Gates admitted.
“It’s not going away and it’s going to be hard for a while.”
Goldsons first record as a solo artist was released in 1993, with the release of his second album, “A Love Supreme,” which went on to sell over 5 million copies.
Gats last album, 1997’s “The Music Never Stopped,” was also a commercial success.
However, after Gates went on hiatus for a long time, he decided to step back into the spotlight, with his own record.
“That was kind of the plan for me, and then my next record, ‘Gates,” was released on March 18, 1999, and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
“In the last five years, I have been playing around a lot with the songwriting process, and it really just comes back to my music,” Gates revealed.
“So that is when it’s really interesting.”
