COLGATE'S FIRST THEOREM OF SONGWRITING
or THE ADDICTION/IMPRINT THEORY
 
THE ADDICTION - if addiction is an effort on the part of the addict to recapture their first high, then addiction to songwriting could be construed as an effort to relive one's first musical high.
THE IMPRINT - not unlike the duckling believing itself a chicken because a hen was the first thing thing it saw, I postulate that the songwriting addict is similarly imprinted.  Indelibly marked for life by that first song that stopped them in their tracks. My particular "hen" is The Weight by The Band. I can remember exactly where I was and what I felt.  I've been trying to pull "into Nazareth" ever since.
Hello. My name is Bill. I am an addict.
