Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “You Are Not Alone”

The Washington Squares – The Eagles

If you are not familiar with either song today, you are not alone.

The Washington Squares were a three-piece folk group. Their protest-themed music was not received as well in the nineties, when they were active. They were ahead of their time.

This Glen Frey-penned tune is from Long Road Out of Eden, their follow-up to The Long Run that was 18 years in the making. The record is just sturdy songcraft, not enough to take the world by storm again but better than most of their new contemporaries.
