Only the Lonely!
Songs of loneliness and loss by some of the best American musicians ever -- including Roy Orbison (left),
Bonnie Raitt and James Taylor.
This week on The Big Fat Wide Americana Hour.
Listen, sad songs are carthartic!
As one songwriter said to me once,
"Hey, it's cheaper than therapy!"
And they can be beautiful, too --
describing a genuine human emotion
in words that carry great meaning.
Three Dog Night * Delbert McClinton
