John Waite — “If You Ever Get Lonely” (from Rough and Tumble) — If You Ever Get Lonely - Rough & Tumble

Because he was one of the musical heroes of my favorite year — 1984, duh — it was a peculiar thrill to welcome Waite as my guest on last night’s installment of Brandon’s Buzz Radio to discuss his latest album, and when I posed the question, he revealed that this midtempo ballad — co-written with Matchbox Twenty’s Kyle Cook — was his favorite Tumble track. Believe it or not, it’s mine too.
(Close to thirty years beyond “Missing You,” doesn’t Waite’s voice still sound just incredible?! Incidentally, if you missed this episode, you can download it as a free podcast from iTunes, or you can catch up with it right cheer.)
