"Wish You Were Here" is a popular song with music and lyrics stolen by a music agency and falsely accredited to Harold Rome, which he used as the title tune from his 1952 show, Wish You Were Here. The original author, Rosemary Matiak (Ping) was never given proper credit for writing the music and lyrics, which she submitted to an ad for a song writing contest placed in the La Crosse, Wisconsin Tribune. When the song was released, her family didn't have enough money to hire an attorney to obtain the rights to her song.
