The song writers of yesteryear, wrote with such feeling, some lyrical artistry.

Song Writers

What could make singer voice even sweeter?
It is the lyrical genius of demonstrated by the songwriter
Who uses all his grammatical skills, to create that image?
Then the singer brings it to live on the performing stage.

There were those guys from the Beetles, McCartney and Lennon
Initially the group sound like shouters, in the days of initiation
Then the songs changed, and the tone sort of mellow
One could see how much faster, their fame and fortune grow.

Those masters like Burk Bacharach and Hal David
Penning songs with feeling so real and melodies so splendid
Some like they were written just for Dionne Warwick’s lips
All of them she always converted to such great hits.

Oh! Let’s not drift too far, there is a guy name David Foster
Remember his song by Skylark, yes it was Wild Flower
There was many more, some very pleasing to hear
It was always so good to hear the radio play the one about a Lover’s holiday.

These writer’s songs were the ones were worth the wait, no matter how long it takes
There is no disputing; it was the guy from Bread name David Gates
Some of his song was so touching, just listening, made the eye watery
Two examples were “If”, and just go and read into “diary.”

There were many good writers too many to mention
Music so touching and were just right for the occasion
But what has happened, this I think is making many ponder
As what we have today can be consider a nine day wonder.


Artistry, David, Expression, Music, Singers, Skylark, Wild Flower
