Pink Floyd certainly proved,

that there is no another way,

with their early hit of 67;

the great –  ‘See Emily Play’.

 

Neil Diamond also showed

that on belief he was fed,

with his memorable anthem

of strength,  – ‘I am.. I said.

 

Never easy – the uphill path,

when laden with strife,

but Dire Straits gave us hope

with their ‘Walk of Life’.

 

Another talented deep thinker

on hand, when needing to unwind,

was Mr Gordon Lightfoot,

with ‘If you could read my mind.

 

Always the Master of Smooth;

Andy Williams laid his heart bare,

with this unforgettable classic;

his hit song – ‘Solitaire’.

 

Both poignant and meaningful,

Whitney’s hit, easy to recall.

When giving so much of herself

with the ‘Greatest love of all’

 

The only hit for Eddie Holman

back in seventy four,

was ‘(Hey there) lonely girl’;

bringing lovers to the dance floor.

 

Stevie Winwood and Traffic

showed us a way through,

when it was wet underfoot,

with their hit, ‘Hole in my shoe’.

 

Whilst Carole Bayer Sager’s

assertive hit of seventy seven;

‘You’re moving out today’,

sent all feminist’s to heaven.

 

In 1980, Joan Armatrading,

brought us  ‘Me myself I’,

years after ‘Love and Affection’;

her army of fans – still standing by.

 

From his Hollywood Nights album,

Bob Seger gave us ‘Still the same’.

A song showing how some survive,

by playing the power game.

 

‘An Englishman in New York’,

from Sting, – came this 88 hit.

About solitude and elegance,

from a certain sartorial Brit.

 

There’s a time to be in company,

and a time to be alone.

A time to be nostalgic,

and a time to call your own.

 

There’s a time to be together,

but it’s getting the balance right,

that makes for true contentment,

when anxiety comes to bite.
