Lonely Is The Hardest

Album: Rock Hard (1980)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to 3 minutes 47 seconds, "Lonely Is The Hardest" was co-written by Suzi Quatro and her then-husband and lead guitarist Len Tuckey in 1979. In her autobiography, Unzipped, she says it was about her time alone in England before her rise to stardom.
  • Producer Mike Chapman made Quatro record this at midnight with the lights off because he wanted her "raw and hurt." >>
