Public Service Broadcasting

Brighton's Dome, a place I've missed
whilst Covid's kept us in
for live music's long hiatus
which has bordered on a sin

But though the virus is still with us
freedom has now found a way
to open up the doors again
'Thank Goodness' hear me say!

As last week with good friends I'd not seen
for two long years returned
to Brighton's Dome for a live gig
a treat we all have earned

And Public Service Broadcasting
delivered with aplomb
the music we have missed so much
and waited for so long

A tonic for the soul and more
the music in our veins
Live gigs for entertainment
which I hope now long remains

The Music

Back lit through the dry-ice swirl
the player comes to fore
his nimble fingers on the frets
the crowd cries out for more

The singer steps up to the mic
narration in the song
the scene is set, the story told
the crowd sings loud along

The rhythm pounds, the bass is felt
the lights pulsate and shine
the ambience is magical
the crowd claps there in time

The music as it should be heard
and lived and felt and seen
our heroes up there on the stage
the crowd lives every dream
