    Only the Lonely

    Awfully lonely here.

    While experiencing this lonely downtime, why don't we get it together to make a list of songs about lonliness and missing someone or someone(s) --  or whatever.  

    Some of the best rock songs / ballads are about misery and lonliness.  Only the lonely know why I cry.   :D

    "Only the Lonely" --  Roy Orbison
    "Missing You"" --- John Waite



    NOTE:  Typos will be ignored.  :)

    Laura Nyro,   Lonely Women

    Not sure if this is a rock song/ballad.

    And it's an old one, so if this is some kind of a contest or quiz/exam, disqualify me!

    Re: Only the Lonely

    I'll probably think of more but first and foremost:

    Hank Williams - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

    Another country song by someon you wouldn't think would write country songs:

    Tom Waits - It Looks Like I'm Up Sh!t Creek Again.

    That one could become the new theme song for BDC.

    I thought this thread was a good idea, but you've come up with some gut wrenching songs. :P

    Man, that Billy Bragg / Wilco song is nice.

    "Somebody That I Used to Know" - Gotye



    crickets.  crickets. (don't want the crickets to be lonely, so I will leave two).

    In response to MattyScornD's comment:

    Lonely Is The Night - Billy Squier 




    Billy Squier is a (MA) home boy?   Just saw that he was born and raised here.  It is rare that he is ever mentioned as a Boston / local music success story.    Or perhaps it is I that never noticed his name on any lists, but I can't imagine that I could be *that* oblivious.   :)

    Is his name (often) missing when it comes to handing out local mentions, or am I just blanking?

    Gee, your batting average is pretty good as far as making me laugh.   :)

    Maybe I'll start a thread tomorrow for BDC theme songs, but a thread like that could get ugly.   :P

    Another Elvis song:

    Are You Lonesome Tonight

    This is probably really aggravating my doing things this way. Guess I should make a list. Or I could just go away and leave you all alone.
