CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
“…In my hour of need,
I truly am indeed,
Alone again, naturally...”
Gilbert O'Sullivan's hit song "Alone Again (Naturally)" possesses one of the saddest tales. His lyrics recount a series of tragedies: rejection at the wedding altar; the death of his father followed by his mother. Rather than drown the song in saccharine, O'Sullivan keeps the words at a minimum and void of excess. Enough people were moved by its verses to make it a #1 single in America and Canada in 1972.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
