Only The Lonely

I was driving along in my car the other day, listening to the radio and heard this sung live. I love a bit of cool, laid-back music, it’s a great way to ease into the weekend.

This is a Roy Orbison classic, but I almost prefer this version, by Sydney muso John Kennedy. It’s stripped right back, more like a moody Johnny Cash or soulful Elvis Presley. The video was shot in St Stephen’s Cemetery, Newtown, in Sydney’s Inner West.

If you’re of a certain age, you might remember the bands, JFK and the Cuban Crisis or John Kennedy’s Love Gone Wrong. Well, this him, slightly older, but still in great voice.

  1. Hmmm glad you said, “almost prefer this version” – it’s a noble effort but can it really compare with the original? ;0)
    Check him out from an early tour of your fair land (of which I have much affection for having lived and worked in Brisbane for two years)
