Pandemic reveals the often sorrowful living situation of many people. Lack of empathy on the part of fellow human beings and society in general increases feelings of loneliness and despair. Not only seniors in care facilities who cannot receive visits from relatives are affected. Loneliness threatens the lives of many people - and not just since today. For as long as there have been musical recordings, we have known songs about the strong, negative feelings that move us and define our lives. Early blues recordings or old timey music often have loneliness, desperation, the blows of fate - but also hope and dreams as their theme. Tragic experiences such as abandonment, defeats and setbacks, death and loneliness have been made the theme by writers and musicians at all times. Bear Family's producer Nico Feuerbach has dealt with the topic and sensitively compiled a collection of songs on the subject. His concept is not limited to a random stringing together of best known recordings on this topic.
