There’s somebody waiting alone in the street
For someone to walk up and greet
Here you are all alone in the city
Where’s the love that you took to your side
Lonely faces will stare through your eyes in the night
And they’ll say
Woman sweet woman
Please come home with me
You’re shining and willing and free
But your love is a common occurrence
Not like love that I feel in my heart
Still, you know that may be what I need
Is someone to lay down beside me
And even though it’s not real
Just someone to lay down beside me
You’re the story of my life
Someone to lay down beside me
And even though it’s not real
Just someone to lay down beside me
You’re the story of my life
The morning is breaking
The street lights are off
The sun will soon share all the cost
Of a world that can be sort of heartless
Not like the love that I feel in my heart
Still, you know that may be all you’ll get
Is someone to lay down beside you
And even though it’s not real
Just someone to lay down beside you
You just can’t ask for more

Linda Ronstadt In Atlanta 1977 17 Someone To Lay Down Beside Me

Linda did not write most of the songs she covered. Linda was an extraordinary interpreter, who elevates each song she chooses. “Someone to lay down beside me” is a great example of Linda’s creative interpretative talent. A skilled interpretive artist embodies the lyric. Listen to, “Someone to lay down beside me”, with or without eyes closed, and tell me Linda has not lived every word of this song.

Here is the list of songs written and or co-written by Linda Ronstadt:

Title Written by Originally by

Lo siento mi vida Linda Ronstadt, Kenny Edwards, Gilbert Ronstadt Linda Ronstadt
Try Me Again Linda Ronstadt, Andrew Gold Linda Ronstadt
Winter Light Linda Ronstadt, Eric Kaz, Zbigniew Preisner Linda Ronstadt


CR’s Take




OnePlus Buds Pro Headphone

This wireless Bluetooth model from OnePlus delivers very good sound quality and active noise reduction, combining elements of in-ear and earbud earphones. These earphones have an isolating design and an ambient sound monitoring feature; they will provide some muffling and electronic canceling of external noises and reduce the amount of sound that escapes from the earpieces. As such, they are best for those who want highly portable earphones that reduce the noise they hear from their surroundings or don’t want the sound from the earpieces to disturb others.

New Yorker Magazine recently featured Linda Ronstadt Has Found Another Voice. This a gentle reminder to our team that Linda Rondstadt was calling. Dishonorable to feature emerging new artists, like Americana star Courtney Marie Andrews (sounds like a young Linda Ronstadt), without returning to the original voice. Many young ones born in the ’90s and early 2000s, reared on autotune-enhanced pop vocalists, seek genuine singers like Pink. Eventually, and with Linda’s incomparable voice consequentially, they return to Linda Ronstadt.

I believe no one could touch Linda in her day. It is challenging to find another song interpreter close to Linda today. Other great female vocalists can belt out a power ballad (Christina, Whitney, Mariah, etc.), but Linda had something special, something the others lack; restraint-see control. She could raise the power level when the melody demanded but quietly convey emotion when bigness was unnecessary. Serving the feeling of the song and telling the story was paramount. She is one of the greats. And in her humility, a natural star.

Love this interview for the frankness, humility, grace, and freely expressed unbridled opinions. No controversy here, just honesty and an accurate assessment of the hypocrisy of the world, not to mention, Rupert Murdoch.

Since bursting onto the music scene in 1967, Linda Ronstadt has been an icon for more than 50 years. Her extraordinary vocal range and ambition created unforgettable songs across rock, pop, country, folk ballads, American standards, classic Mexican music, and soul. As the most popular female recording artist of the 1970s – with songs like “You’re No Good,” “When Will I Be Loved,” and “Blue Bayou”—Ronstadt filled huge arenas and produced an astounding eleven Platinum albums. Ronstadt was the first artist to top the Pop, Country, and R&B charts simultaneously, she won 10 Grammy ® Awards on 26 nominations and attained a level of stardom the Tucson native never could have imagined.

In LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE, Ronstadt is our guide through her early years of singing Mexican Canciones with her family; her folk days with the Stone Poneys; and her reign as the “rock queen” of the ‘70s and early ’80s. She was a pioneer for women in the male-dominated music industry; a passionate advocate for human rights and had a high-profile romance with California Governor Jerry Brown. Ultimately, her singing voice was stilled by illness and forced her into retirement but her music and influence remain as timeless as ever. With moving performance footage and appearances by friends and collaborators including Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, and Jackson Browne, LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE celebrates an artist whose desire to share the music she loved made generations of fans fall in love with her — and the sound of her voice.
