Sensitive Thugs: 25 Songs for a Lonely Valentine's Day

Akon "Lonely" (2004)


Softest Lyric: "Ever since my girl left me, my whole life came crashing"

Akon samples the original Bobby V—Bobby Vinton—to express how much he regrets running off his once loyal girlfriend with his inattentiveness. This song gave Akon his first worldwide hit...but alas he was still so lonely. No amount of gold and platinum plaques could keep him warm at night. We can only hope that if you've been in Akon's position that you learned a lesson. There's only so much you can put somebody through to test their loyalty before they bail. Don't take people for granted. We hope you feel like shit right now.
