Linda Ronstadt When Will I Be Loved

Linda Ronstadt When Will I Be Loved

Country Rock

The song was written by Phil Everly, and The Everly Brothers recorded it in 1960. They had a Top 10 hit with it when it went to #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #4 in the U.K. Linda Ronstadt covered the song, giving it a woman’s point of view regarding the heartache of love. (But who wouldn’t love that face?) She released it on her 1974 album Heart like a Wheel and as a single in 1975, backed with “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore.” Ronstadt’s version surpassed the Everly’s  on the charts, rising to #1 on  U.S. Hot Billboard Hot Country Singles and in Canada; it went to #2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Linda Ronstadt is a singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, actress, and political activist. Her music has covered a variety of genres, from rock to jazz to Latin music. After touring and performing for many years, she retired in 2011. She has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Here are the lyrics to “When Will I Be Loved” by Linda Ronstadt:

I’ve been cheated, been mistreated
When will I be loved

I’ve been put down, I’ve been pushed ’round
When will I be loved

When I find a new man that I want for mine
Always breaks my heart in two, it happens every time

I’ve been made blue, I’ve been lied to
When will I be loved

When I find a new man that I want for mine
Always breaks my heart in two, it happens every time

I’ve been cheated, been mistreated
When will I be loved
When will I be loved
Tell me when will I be loved

For other songs by Linda Ronstadt: “It’s So Easy” and “You’re No Good.”
