I Remember It Well


Key of Zed is a duo consisting of Mike Charko (multiple instruments, engineering, background vocals, melodies, lyrics, and arrangements) and Keith Shields (lead vocals, background vocals, percussion, lyrics, melodies, arrangements, social media, and promotion). The duo has been collaborating on song-writing and performing since 2009. Their latest release is a song called “I Remember It Well.” Keith Shields says that the song started out as a pure love song but, in true Key of Zed fashion, it morphed into a song about a man who is far away from his love, “paying for his fame with memories.” The guitar style is reminiscent of 1970’s sounds with just a bit of Blue Rodeo thrown in. We think you will enjoy this fresh kick at a retro mood and we hope you like our latest hit (okay, I said "hit" with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek). Check out all Key of Zed music at Reverbnation. You can even download selected tracks and take it with you on the road.

I Remember It Well
(Lyrics and Music by Mike Charko and Keith Shields; SOCAN 2016)

I can still recall
The first time I held your hand
I can still recall
Oh the life we planned
Butterflies in my tummy
First time I called you honey
Oh-Oh I remember it well

I can still recall
Oh, the way you smiled
I can still recall
How you drove me wild
Making love under the covers
Talking on and on for hours
Oh-Oh I remember it well

But tonight I call your name
And it’s all a shade of blue
I’m paying for my fame
With memories of you

I can still recall
The times we ran away
I can still recall
The crazy things we’d say
Talkin’ ‘bout the dreams we’d chase down
The legacy to leave our children
Oh-oh I remember it well

But tonight I call your name
And it’s all a shade of blue
I’m paying for my fame
With memories of you

(Instrumental break)

And as my mind goes racing back
I can’t recall the things we lacked
Girl you’re easy on my mind
On days like this I find
I remember it well

But tonight I call your name
And it’s all a shade of blue
I’m paying for my fame
With memories of you

I can still recall
I can still recall
I can still recall
