Book on crafting pop hits

Hi, can you identify this post? It was about a songwriter who wrote a book on composing high quality popular songs. The FPP included a rare interview he gave the Guardian and the thread consensus was that the interview was very poorly done. It's for a niece who's making demos. Thanks everybody!

I've been playing music all of my life, and I've never seen a better distillation of music theory than this comment. It's a full semester's worth of study in a few short paragraphs. I know it's been months since it appeared ... but this is truly worthy of a sidebar, or a book deal, whichever comes first.

eBay auction for MetaFilter song

I believe the oppurtunity has finally come for all MeFites to show their appreciation for Matt's efforts in keeping this community running.

And no, I'm not kidding either.
