Deep Cuts: Alone Songs

It’s true: Some of us want nothing more from our government than to be left alone. Well, that’s not the whole story. We want you to be left alone, too. We believe when your phone rings, it should be someone you might actually want to talk to, and when you turn on your screen of choice you shouldn’t have to run a gauntlet of political screeching that you can’t do anything about anyway. We think you should get to be you without some corporation, organization, or government entity demanding that you be somebody else.

So smoke your guts out. Eat nothing but kale. Listen to Taylor Swift and Merle Haggard back to back. Drink Faygo with your clown friends. Build a Lego castle. Do whatever you want, provided you’re leaving the rest of us alone, and we’ll do the same.

Anyway, alone songs:

“Leave Me Alone,” Jerry Cantrell.

“Alone In the City,” Ray Charles.

“Why Can’t A Man Stand Alone?” Elvis Costello.

“I Walk Alone,” Marty Robbins.

“You Ain’t Alone,” Alabama Shakes.

“All Alone,” Gorillaz.

“Go It Alone,” Beck.

“Hurt and Alone,” TheHaints.

So there you have it: Eight songs that will always get by on their own. What did I miss? I’m listening.
