“There’s really no art to songwriting. I think it’s a gift. I think that everybody gets a gift, God gives everyone a gift …
“That’s why I’m not one of those songwriters where I have to take myself to an isolated place for two months so I can write. It just happens to me out of the clear blue. I’m on the plane or somewhere and an idea comes. It can be a line, a thought or a melody. There’s no sequence.”
—Smokey Robinson (on CBS This Morning)
