PRS are exhibiting works from 25 leading songwriters including Sir Paul McCartney, Sting, Gary Barlow and Paul Weller.
Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Tim Rice, Julian Lennon* and Annie Lennox are just some of the famous songwriters that have penned original lyrics from their most famous hits for the ‘The Art of the Song’ campaign. Set up by PRS for Music the campaign has asked some of the UK’s best songwriters and composers to donate lyrics from their greatest hits to be auctioned off at Bonhams in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. The exclusive launch party exhibiting the works for the first time is taking place on November 10th and we have two pairs of tickets to give away.
The works will not be exhibited publicly so this will be the only chance to view in person lyrics including; Rod Temperton’s original Thriller lyrics never before seen in public, Sting’s – Message in a Bottle, Duran Duran’s – Girls on Film, Sir Tim Rice’s – ‘Don’t Cry for me Argentina’ and Chris Rea’s original lyrics written for ‘Road to Hell’ famously penned on the M25.
