    It just makes you long for more, doesn't it?
    Well Kate let me just say .... oh nevermind - this is a path that I probably shouldn't go down!

    I've been wasting a lot of time surfing today, and found a reference to a film called The Lonely Guy, from 1984, with Glenn credited as a songwriter. Does anyone know about this, and could one of the mystery songs belong?

    No mention of Smuggler's Blues or Ghostbusters on this site - looks ripe for a bit of editing!

    And I should probably add I have a page on it here which gives the lyrics and a bit more songwriting information as well as a link to the album itself at the bottom.

    Saw the movie for the first time just last night. It started out funny but soon lost its charm and by the end I was glad I had gotten it used for only a few bucks.

    Wow, quick response, Nancy! That's amazing! Thank you. It's not very inspiring sung by that guy - I wonder how it would have sounded with Glenn singing.

    Well, I have to admit, I wasn't that quick. I had coincidentally put it up just before you asked - it's just good timing on your part. lol

    And while it would have been better with Glenn singing it, I like this version, too. There's a lot of emotion in the song.

    I think this is probably the oldest thread I've ever revived, but poking around for information about "Everybody's Gonna Love Somebody Tonight," I found more unreleased "Mystery Songs":

    IT'S TIME TO GET A LADY
    Renewal registration for: 1969-09-22
    Words & music.
    Copyright Claimant: Martin Kosins & Glenn L. Frey (A)

    ROAD STORY (note this one is listed as a "Dramatic Work and Music; or Choreography" instead of just music. Hmm!)
    Type of Work: Dramatic Work and Music; or Choreography
    Description: 15 p.
    Notes: A treatment.
    Copyright Claimant: Glenn L. Frey

    =================================

    It looks like "It's Time to Get a Lady" might have been an unreleased Longbranch Pennywhistle song.

    As for "Road Story" - the description says it's 15 pages. What was Glenn up to?

    I think Road Story was a play. I found some info on it here.

    Thanks for digging up that link!

    Very interesting! In the past, Glenn has expressed a desire to write scores for film/television/plays etc. I wonder if this was along those lines? Too bad it didn't come off!

    What would be wrong with him attempting to revisit those 1995 songs, which were written at the same time as the other 'new' Solo Collection songs? I shake my head in disbelief.
