I referred to as my cousin Bob to see how he was dealing with his stay-at-home sentence. He mentioned “I’ve been cooped up so lengthy, I’m getting lonely for folks I don’t even like.” May it presumably worsen?
Sure, it might worsen. Bob might have been singing “Howdy Partitions.” (“How’d issues go for you right this moment … however lonely partitions, I’ll preserve you firm.” Later within the music, he talks to the window.)
We’ve at all times identified that no man is an island and that all of us want a specific amount of human contact. Persons are even adopting pets in file numbers as a result of there is no such thing as a punishment extra painful than solitary confinement.
I did a survey right this moment of the 25 saddest lonely songs: all nation. You’d be stunned in any respect the explanations for writing a tragic music. Misplaced love and damaged hearts are quantity considered one of course, however automotive accidents, youngster abuse, associates dying of most cancers, deaths within the household, together with a grandfather, graveside scenes, and one “I Love Your Truck” about envy for an additional man’s pickup with a canine in it.
In all probability the all-time basic hit is Hank Williams singing “I’m So Lonesome I May Cry.” And Johnny Money will break your coronary heart singing “I harm myself right this moment, to see if I nonetheless really feel.”
All this leads me to a prediction. I predict we’ll quickly have a brand new batch of lonely songs arising out of the coronavirus pandemic. However we don’t have Hank Williams and Johnny Money anymore, so we’ll need to rely on a youthful star like Willie Nelson to sing “It Was All the time In My Beard”; Vince Gill to sing “No person Solutions Once I Name Your Identify”; Garth Brooks to sing “Can’t Hug You Six Ft Away”; Taylor Swift to sing “Simply Put Your Hand on the Window”; Kris Kristofferson to sing “Why Me Lord”; Dolly Parton to sing “What’s That On Your Breath”; LeAnn Rimes to sing “Not Till You’re Examined, Examined, Examined”; Keith City to sing “No person At My Live performance”; Reba McEntire to sing “That Masks Isn’t Vast Sufficient To Cowl My Smile”; George Strait to sing “COVID-19 Blues”; Blake Shelton to sing “Oklahoma Is Open For Enterprise Once more”; Tim McGraw to sing “You Can Get A Haircut In Louisiana”; Carrie Underwood to sing “I’d Like To Sit Nearer To You”; Martina McBride to sing “Gloomy”; and Ricky Skaggs to sing “I Can’t Masks My Emotions For You.”
And eventually, my cousin Bob singing “There’s A Tear In My Beer As a result of Even The Individuals I Don’t Like Aren’t Calling.” Nevertheless it may very well be worse Bob, you possibly can be alone on slightly island with no partitions to speak to, no pet, and no cleaning soap to clean your fingers.
