Petula Clark: Songwriter Interview With Songfacts
Petula Clark chats with Songfacts about what’s going on in her head when she’s writing, singing, or performing, the process of collaboration, and details of her career as a whole.
“Every song is sort of like a mini play to me. Incidentally, I just think I should say to you, I don’t look on myself as a songwriter at all. I’m a sometime songwriter. I’ll write a song if it comes to me, but nobody could say to me, “Will you write me a song?” Because I wouldn’t know how to do that. It just has to come.
So yeah, when I’m actually singing the songs on stage, they’re like little plays that are going through my head. And some of them are more interesting than others, of course. It depends on the song.”
