When you hear something that seems like a good idea for a song do you write it down immediately, or let it simmer in your mind?

Immediately if possible. I have a folder called "Ideas." I have dozens and dozens of ideas started there. Certainly not all of them will become songs. But I try never to take the idea for granted. Even if something comes at 3am, I tend to get out of bed to record it or write it down. They don't always manifest in great songs, but the song gods always seem to throw some kind of reward our way when we make the effort.
