But… it’s not what you put in, is it? It’s what you leave out.  Listen to… listen to Marvin Gaye… A song like “What’s Going On.”  That single “woo” at the end of the second verse – you know that woo – that single “woo.”

That’s what you remember.  The silly things, the little things… there’s only one, and it makes the song. It’s what you leave out.  That’s rock and roll.

Almost famous (2000)
