Does music theory always help with songwriting, or can it sometimes become a hindrance to the process? Is good songwriting essentially a matter of theory, luck, or talent?

- Is a lot of good songwriting just comprised of clever "illusion" and proper "compensation"?
- Who is Nigel Godrich and who has he produced?
- What is the reason why people like hit songs, despite their catchiness and tendency to be annoying?
