I am lying here

trying to remember

the name of a song

that brings me back

to a time when

I use to belong.

I heard a snippet of it

on the radio today

and now it’s

stuck in my head

and refuses to give way.

Its title is elusive while

the artist is long dead

but it has me humming

as I lie here in bed.

One by one the lyrics

start coming back to me

and with each line

my memory is set free.

Now as I remember it

I can’t help but smile

thinking how we use

to find our songs

by turning a dial,

now we just have to

say their names out loud

and they magically

appear from a cloud.

Music back then was the

soundtrack to your life

but now nothing is original,

and plagiarism is rife.

The last of the great artists

will soon be gone,

so, it is up to us that

their legacy lives on.
