I was watching the music video for "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's. And I started wondering....
Was there actually a Delilah?
Did Tom Higgenson (lead singer of Plain White T's) actually write this song for a girl?
Was her name actually Delilah?
Is the story true?
I'm assuming he did. Because I know how hard it would be to write a song like that that didn't have some type of emotional attachment to it.
I know that I've written songs that have been inspired by people I've met, known, even liked. I guess my point is, is that I always wonder what songs mean? What they go back to? What is the message? What's the emotion? What or Who is the inspiration?
I listened to some music today written by somebody I used to know for a short period of time, and I asked all these questions. It was sort of therapeutic.
Wouldn't it be cool to be the inspiration for a song?
