18 Single Girl - Sandy Posey

The single girl all alone in a great big town
The single girl gets so tired of love letting her down
The life's unreal and the people are homely
And the nights can get so lonely
The single girl needs a sweet loving man to lean on
I'm a single girl wondering if love could be passing her by
I'm a single girl and I know all about men and their lies
Nobody loves me cause nobody knows me
Nobody takes the time to go slowly
The single needs a sweet loving man to lean on
I gotta make my own way
There's rent I gotta pay
I need a night-time love to get me through the day
I'm a single girl all alone in a great big town
I'm a single girl and I get so tired of love letting me down

But there's a man I've yet to know
Waiting somewhere I've yet to go

Someday I'll have a sweet loving man to lean on
The single girl needs a sweet loving man to lean on...

19 The Loner - Neil Young
20 All by Myself - Eric Carmen

It's hard not to feel emotional with this song. - Britgirl

21 When the Music's Over - The Doors
22 Slipping Away - Moby

"Hold on to people, they're slipping away..." - PositronWildhawk

23 Liability - Lorde
24 Tired of Being Alone - Al Green
25 Stranded - Rainbow

"Dog night I'm so alone
A million miles out on my own
No one to talk no one to care
...
No, don't leave me stranded out here
Oh, it's just the loneliness I fear
Lonely window, fading star..." - Metal_Treasure

26 The Loner - Gary Moore
27 Legacy - Eminem
28 Yer Blues - The Beatles

Somehow the lyrics don't matter when this is played by the Jeff Healey Band. Actually forget the lyrics, the power of the music should make you feel better. - Britgirl

29 Come Back Home - Howlin' Wolf
30 Blue and Lonesome - Little Walter
31 Lonesome Road - Brother John Sells
32 So Lonely - The Police
33 Sloe Gin - Joe Bonamassa

Love the guitar in this. - Britgirl

34 Alone - Armin Van Buuren

A very powerful, emotional trance piece which really makes you think about the way people are left alone but can't be seen or heard when they most need someone to help them. A lot of songs cover the sadness of being lonely, but if there was something about how such a feeling can drain the hope and joy from you entirely, this is such a chilling example. - PositronWildhawk

35 Ride On - AC/DC
36 I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams
37 Hey You - Pink Floyd
38 What's Another Year - Johnny Logan
