"Alone Again (Naturally)" is a song by Irish singer-songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan. It was released in 1972 at the same time as (but not on) the album, “Back to Front”. The single spent six weeks at No.1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 2 song for 1972. The song also spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Easy Listening chart. The track reached No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
The song is an introspective ballad, starting with the singer contemplating suicide after being left at the altar after his bride deserted him, and then telling about the death of his parents. O'Sullivan has said that the song is not autobiographical, as he did not know his father (who died when O'Sullivan was 11) very well, and that his father had mistreated his mother. Also, his mother was still alive when the song was written. O'Sullivan later commented “Neil Diamond covered "Alone Again (Naturally)" and said he couldn't believe a 21- year-old wrote it, but for me, it was just one song I had written.
This is a one-off single rhythm complete with intro's/endings/fills & variations written in the style of the song for newer Ketron instruments. (Please note this is not a song file - often referred to as a midi file - that refers to and plays only one song. Subject to the chords you play on your instrument this style can be used for many numbers of which Alone Again Naturally is just one).
