On songwriting: Bobby Lopez at TEDxBroadway



TEDxBroadway aims to engage all participants and stakeholders in the vitality of the community—both on stage and in the audience—to develop a vision and commitment to the future of Broadway.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    Very strange. He begins by talking about how it is important for writers not to make themselves the centre of everything. But he then goes on for the rest of his speech to do excactly that. He doesn't talk about how music works and what is important in good music. He speaks only about himself. Count how many times he begins a sentence with "and then I…."

    Longest I've seen Bobby talk! EGOT – already and he's just getting started. What we saw with Frozen 2 tease at D23 — the Lopez's keep rolling along.

    That's awesome!! So glad I saw this. Always loved "Let it Go". It's even better to know the story behind it. How awesome.

    Best Lesson I got here, know when to end it. No but that was a cool talk with several valuable lessons about the potential for growth and maturity and self discovery that really comes through with some honest humility.

    Such a sweet talented person. He finds the emotional truth in all of  his songs which is why I think his work is so popular.

    My favourite bit of this presentation was the story of Arion and the Dolphin and the influence of music on other people, "carrying (them) over their sea of troubles". Also liked how he talked about being self centered and realizing how other people's talents can contribute to ease that sea of trouble – that is Elder Price characterization right there!
