Lonely Girl – Steve Forbert (1980) Remastered HQ Audio HD Video

“Lonely Girl” was released on Steve Forbert’s third album, Little Stevie Orbit, in 1980. Finally I got something done for a Steve Forbert track….the vid’s a quickie, but the song’s special…as are most songs this guy produces.

I started listening to Steve Forbert in 1979 after hearing his hit “Romeo’s Tune”. Picked up the album it was released on (Jackrabbit Slim) and was immediately taken by the quirkiness and originality of the songs. Shortly after I picked up his first album, which I liked even more. Then this third album, which was equally fine.

In discussing great artists that were overlooked and that should have been way more popular, to me Steve Forbert is one of the first to come to mind. He was unfortunately labeled as “the next Dylan” (I remember at the time it was attached to him in nearly every reference) and all that baggage ultimately didn’t help him. He is an absolutely genius on every level….a master songwriter, a singularly unique vocalist!

After years of listening to mp3 versions (all I had in the many years since I sold my original vinyl) finally was able to pick up this album from Steve Forbert.com…man, it’s glorious! The sound is amazing and the bonus tracks are seriously as good as or better than the album tracks!

A serious struggle to select which track to do…there will be more vids coming.

I already had the remaster of his two earlier albums (released on one CD with equally stunning and worthy bonus tracks from both) and now that I finally have this one……I’ve been on a Steve Forbert binge! I suggest you do as well…if you’re already a fan you know the deal, if you’re not….well, you are in for something special.

Buy the album here….now! http://www.steveforbert.com

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art contributed to this new art…..THANK YOU!!!

[Lyrics]
Lonely girl
please don’t cry
Stop the tears
Dry your eyes

Lonely girl
please don’t cry
Stop the tears
Dry your eyes

I see you working harder these days
for little in return
I’ve seen ya tryin’ to smile and please and
baby don’t make what ya earn

Lonely girl
please don’t cry
stop the tears
dry your eyes

Lonely girl
please don’t cry
stop the tears
dry your eyes

All the guys who dance for you
they’re so unsatisfied
their hungry hands come reaching out
to get your bows untied

And I’ll come round to sing to you
starving just like them
as I talk to you and long for you
and sing my midnight hymns to a

Lonely girl
please don’t cry
stop the tears
dry your eyes
