I feel like I will never reach Max Martin's level

Great discussion with some great points.

Something I have not seen mentioned is that Max never gave up believing in himself and his work. The backing track that somehow ended up with Britney singing on it "Baby One More Time" was doing the rounds for quite some time in various disguises before becoming a smash hit. How many of us would have simply given up on it?

Id bet we all have a gem on our drives, but simply have no idea how to get it to that next level. Not giving up helps, but then when you have heard the same track a million times its impossible to like it anymore eh?

I only wish I could listen to my own advice!

'not giving up' is exactly why he won in the end, you truly have to believe in what you are doing or it'll fail.
