So sad. Dusty Springfield singing, “A House Is Not a Home” written by Burt Bacharach.

One of the great female voices.

Wow. Just re-listened to “Baker Street” for the first time in years, by Gerry Rafferty from 1978. His father was technically deaf but still taught him Irish “rebel” songs.

Now the same 70’s oldie station on Mediacom is playing “Old Time Rock And Roll” by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band and it is rousing.

I think I will relisten to Baker Street now but here are some good solos in the middle of songs that are worth listening to again and/or sung by high pitched voices?

 “Crying in the Rain” by the Everly Brothers. “Victoria” by The Kinks. “America” by Simon and Garfunkel. “The talk on the bus” section is so great. “They’ve all come to look for America.” “Limelight” by Rush. Wow. That bass guitar!

“Ordinary World” by Duran Duran may be my current favorite.

The lyrics are bit quirky but with the music and singing this is a very sad song. Peter

She's Leaving Home by The Beatles

Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

She goes down the stairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside, she is free

She,... (we gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (we gave her everything money could buy)

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
Daddy, our baby's gone.
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
How could she do this to me?

She (we never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (never a thought for ourselves)
Home (we struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home, after living alone, for so many years

Friday morning, at nine o'clock
She is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Greeting a man from the Motortrade

She (what did we do that was wrong)
Is Having (we didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (fun is the one thing that money can't buy)

Something inside, that was always denied,
For so many years,.
She's leaving home

Recently I've been getting into the poetic elements in the songs of Mickey Newbury.

His lyrics are a cut way above the normal, even in a country song about a woman leaving him.

And, yes, this is a good song for crying.

I've had a woman just like he described. And a few friendships.

Just like the dawn, my heart is silently breaking...

It's her sorrow, it's not a man...

I know she tried...

It's not her heart. Lord, it's her mind...

Just beautiful and poignant as all get out...

One More Night Phil Collins One more night, one more night

I've been trying, oh so long to let you know
Let you know how I feel
And if I stumble, if I fall, just help me back
So I can make you see

Please give me one more night
Give me one more night
One more night
'Cause I can't wait forever

Give me just one more night
Ooh, just one more night
Oh, one more night
'Cause I can't wait forever

I've been sitting here so long, wasting time
Just staring at the phone
And I was wondering should I call you
Then I thought, maybe you're not alone

Please give me one more night
Give me just one more night
Oh, one more night
'Cause I can't wait forever . . . . Songwriters: Phil Collins.

I see I may be exceeded the, ‘oh not another one from him’ range but here is a very sad song.

“All alone am I” by Brenda Lee.

All alone am I ever since your goodbye
All alone with just the beat of my heart
People all around but I don't hear a sound
Just the lonely beating of my heart . . . .
