Lonely No More
The ultimate love story of finding true love under the most unexpected circumstances. “Like steel that just won’t bend, my love I will defend, from now until the end.”
A bit of a grammatical nightmare in a sense, as the phrase “I’ll never be lonely no more” is a bit of a double negative. As a purported writer who appreciates proper grammar, Dave stewed over this conundrum for weeks until producer Mikey Bolenbach chimed in that sometimes proper grammar and rock ‘n’ roll just don’t mix.
Pointing out that Van Halen’s Ain’t Talkin’ ’bout Love wasn’t exactly Shakespearian, but still rocked, the grammar gaffe was overlooked so the words could flow like a river, deliver consonance to the ear, even if they make English teachers around the world cringe. Lonely No More is the third single from the album Rock City.
