Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone again Naturaly"
Sorry, I'm on my kindle, tough to post a vid of the song.
Perfect! Yes, I grew up with Gilbert's songs. A very talented songwriter.
I have to go shopping for food. There and back it is over six miles and I don't have a car so I have to walk. It is a brisk, grey day with a grey
green ocean. I walk there and back along the shore line. I will be thinking of these songs I have heard as I make my journey. Please anyone continue
to post. I am thoroughly enjoying this. I will give everyone a star and listen to the tracks you post when I return.
Thanks to everyone so far!

I always appreciate when a band writes the music in major keys and the lyrics are this depressing! Even though this is a D minor over C it has such a
contrasting feel to all of their other work and it sounds like its in major until you get to the end when it switches to E minor to D minor to F
While the term "depressing" can be subjective, every time someone talks about depressing songs, there is a Toby Keith song that runs through my
head--probably because my parents were divorced and my mom had remarried by the time that this song came out. My empathy well ran over for my dad when
I listened to this song at 15, wondering how my dad was feeling as he was forced out of his own house and away from his family and children (except
every other weekend). Hell, it actually started the open conversation about it with my dad, and I'm glad it did.
It still hits home when I listen to it, probably because I was close to divorce at one point about 7 years ago, and I couldn't imagine how that would
have affected me or my son. I'm glad I never found out.
Please excuse the cheezy 90s country music, hair, and video...it's the words that do it for me:
