I don’t know if you are aware of the site, Song Exploder, but it is great to listen to what goes into creating a song.
Musicians take apart one of their songs piece by piece and let you hear what is going on. They explain the secrets that go into making the sounds of the song or their memories of what they were thinking and experiencing when they were creating the song.
If you are a music fan you should check out the site.
