i tend to like simple music. & clever, succinct lyrics. Songs that don’t try to be more than they need to to be effective, to stir up something emotionally within you.
Definitely none of the kids I grew up with would have ever thought, ‘Zooey will be on television and have her own show.’ I wasn’t the world’s most popular child, which gave me built-in tenacity. Nothing has ever come easy for me, and I think that’s a really good thing. I learned at an early age that you have to work hard for what you get.
