Reminds a bit of a famous story about George Jessel. Jessel broke up with his wife and felt so bad he bought a gun to shoot himself and penned a suicide note. He then called pal George M. Cohan and read him the note. Cohan in an attempt to help, told Jessel that the note sounded like a great lyric for a song, and invited him over so they could discuss it.
Eventually Jessel got distracted, the lyric became a hit song, Jessel bumped into a new girl on his way to the music publishers, who would become his next wife, and he eventually sold the gun for a small profit.
Sounds a bit fanciful, but the song was a hit. It’s title was You May Not Remember, All the Things I Can’t Forget. And song was featured prominently in the hit Eddie Cantor movie Show Business.
