"Maybe I Didn't Write You, But I Found You." ~ Hoagy Carmichael

“One of the most famous songs Hoagy ever wrote was Stardust, and like many songwriters, he wasn’t sure where it really came from. This is what he had to say, the first time he heard a recording of Stardust: ‘And then it happened, that queer sensation that this melody was bigger than me. Maybe I hadn’t written it at all. The recollection of how, when, and where it all happened became vague as the lingering strains hung in the rafters of the studio. I wanted to shout back at it, maybe I didn’t write you, but I found you’…

I know just what he meant.” ~ Bob Dylan, Theme Time Radio Hour, Young & Old
