Holiday_album_cover#14 – America – “Lonely People” – (1974)

Even though the song is called “Lonely People”, which sounds depressing, the song is kind of an upper if you listen to the lyrics. It’s about not giving up. In fact, the song was written as a counter to the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” – which is not a happy song. It peaked at #5 on the Hot 100.
