The Record And The Needle

photo (20)


Old records with their skipping,

And crackles have far more soul as they play to you.

Their grooves can be a little worn,

But it’s their quirks that you love.

That give depth to the sound.

Sometimes a needle needs picking up and put back on track,

For their unique harmony to work again.

Its a delicate relationship that needs thought and care,

To maintain the best of the song.

And you hope it never gets too scratched to play.
