You know you've written a good song when everybody listens to it and complains that it is too short. Yet it's nearly 4 minutes.

You know you've written a bad song when the kids threaten to behave if you put it on the stereo again.

You know you've written a bad song and performed it badly when you are pelted by the audience with everything from rotten tomatoes, eggs, and half empty beer bottles.......

You know you've written very good, or very bad songs when you type your name in 'Google' and 'Yahoo' and it comes up on the first page of results.

YKYWAGS when you constantly suspect you have unconciously lifted it from a source you have forgotten. Hell, it must be a good song, if it was good enough once. Why, just the thought that you have penned something so good it has already succeeded once before you were even born, could give you goosebumps of pride.YKYWABS when you can't remember how it goes even when you listen back to the tape.
