6 Songs to Soundtrack Your Lonely Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day sounds to drink the loneliness away. Valentine's Day by Walter Price   Are you kicking a tin can down Lonely Street this Valentine’s Day? Do people holding hands and nuzzling make you want to throw up? I feel ya, consensually metaphorically of course… Anyhoo, I love a good sad song highlighting and exploring the realms of the dark days of flying solo. Yearning for that break in life when that special someone rides in and saves the day. But who am I kidding? Wallerfing in self-doubt and reveling in darkness is actually fun(ish). And to prove my point, I’ve selected six tracks to soundtrack your wine stained teeth and tear-streaked face kinda day.

Happy Valentine’s Day


The Smiths – How Soon Is Now?

There’s a club if you’d like to go You could meet somebody who really loves you So you go and you stand on your own And you leave on your own And you go home and you cry And you want to die  

Emma Swift – Woodland Street

I could just stay here In this bar full of cheer Chasing whiskey With two dollar beer But you’ve got a way Making me think that won’t do  

Jamey Johnson – That Lonesome Song

And it’s sad and its long And can’t nobody sing along It’s a southbound train Its a whistle in the wind Ain’t nobody there to care where I been I’m humming on that lonesome song again  

Oasis – Don’t Look Back In Anger

And so, Sally can wait She knows it’s too late as she’s walking on by My soul slides away But don’t look back in anger I heard you say  

Hank Williams Sr. I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill He sounds too blue to fly That means he’s lost the will to live I’m so lonesome I could cry Did you ever see a night so slow As time goes draggin’ by The moon just went behind the clouds
To hide its face and cry The silence of a falling star Lights up a purple sky And as I wonder where you are I’m so lonesome I could cry…

Willie Nelson feat Sinéad O’Connor- Don`t Give Up

Though I saw it all around I never thought that I could be affected I thought that we would be the last to go it is so strange the way things turn Drove the night toward my home the place that I was born on the lakeside And as daylight broke I saw the earth the trees had burned down to the ground
