It feels good to have somebody hold you tight It feels good to have somebody love you right Who would end all my long and lonely nights? Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone Whoa oh I can't stand this living all, oouu all alone Oh I don't want to be alone We used to be such lovers We used to care for one another I don't want to be, I don't want to be alone No no, no no No ooh no I don't want to be alone No no no Need ya, love ya Come back to me ooh I love yo. .
Like Shirley Jones' 1986 album Always in the Mood, Living All Alone typified the synth-based but still melodic mid-to-late-'80s Philly sound. The producers and writers gave her an album's worth of instant-classic singer's songs. The album's first single, the bittersweet "You Just Don't Know," typified the powerful and classy proceedings. First Time Together" also follows the same style. What You Won't Do for Love. Bobby Caldwell, Alfons Kettner.

Phyllis Hyman's "Living All Alone", released in 1986 on Philadelphia, was the album which, for me, marked a turning point in the career of this gifted artist who had started out on her journey more than a decade previously and had remained in relative obscurity, popping up here and there with a track or two that deserved some mention for a time. before fading into the archives. It was not until 2007 that I discovered just how brilliantly Phyllis Hyman did her rendition of "what you won't do for love", perhaps better associated with Dionne Warwick and/or Natalie Cole. By this time I had fair few of her later albums in my collection.
