the motels – all four one – only the lonely
it’s 1982. the l.a. (then) foursome release their third and most successful album. their other giant hit was “suddenly last summer” off of little robbers, their fourth album, but this song will always hold a place in my 80s loving heart as one of the best ballads to come out of the era. “only the lonely can play” – dead on martha davis. dead on.
