  • Mike Stoller
    We never thought we were writing for posterity, because at the time everyone assumed that all the great standards had already been written by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hammerstein... The songs we were writing were supposed to be temporary things, of the period, like comic books.

    We fought about words, we fought about music. We fought about everything.

    Our songs did not transcend R&B. They were R&B hits that white kids were attracted to.

    I write a melody and then change it and change it until I get it the way I like it.

  • Jerry Leiber
    I heard this music coming out of the radio and it was 'Ain't Nobody's Business.' It got me. I thought, 'I can do this.' I decided just like that. No romantic story.

    Hound Dog' took like twelve minutes. That's not a complicated piece of work. But the rhyme scheme was difficult. Also, the metric structure of the music was not easy. 'Kansas City' was maybe eight minutes, if that. Writing the early blues was spontaneous. You can hear the energy in the work.

    Honestly, when Jerry and I started to write, we were writing to amuse ourselves. It was done out of the love of doing it. And we got very lucky in the sense that at some point what we wrote also amused a lot of other people.
