Fassold starts by picking three random chords, “Walk them up and down”. Then he advises “you want to find lyrics that talk about how hard it is being white and in love.” So he chooses “champagne” as his topic for his emotional love song. “We drank champagne when we were young and I know that you weren’t the one”.
