Natasha Bedingfield speaks about her 2004 hit "These Words"
IN THE LATEST issue of UK trade magazine Music Week in their regular
spread Hitmakers: The World's Greatest Songs By The People Who Made
Bedingfield is featured talking about her 2004 hit "These Words".
After signing with small label Phonogenic, founded by songwriters
Steve Kipner and Andrew Frampton, Natasha endeavoured to write a song
with the duo. She said, "One of the things I remember about 'These
Words' is we had written an amazing verse and we were trying to write
the chorus. . . then we got stuck. It's funny because it's about
writer's block and trying to say 'I love you' in a really unique way.
One of the songwriters was like, 'I love you like a river that goes
out into the sea' and was trying to be super-poetic. I was like, 'No,
that isn't really ringing true.' As a joke I said, 'I just want to
say, I love you, I love you, I love you.' Honestly, it was a joke but
they were like, 'That's it!'" Natasha's latest album 'Roll With Me' is
out now. The opinions expressed in this article are
