Lonely Guy
 

Back in the early eighties score albums were thin on the ground and pop themed comedies like Lonely Guy had song dominated soundtracks anyway. So you were lucky for any score tracks to be included, but regardless it was a bitter pill for soundtrack fans to pay good money for things like this.

Lonely Guy
was a short album with Goldsmith's contribution relegated to just two cues running for about 5 minutes. The Wedding is a pop themed chase cue with 80's electronics supporting a small orchestra. Still Goldsmith's theme is brilliantly adapted here to give it an exciting workout for strings.

The other cue, titled No Number, is a melancholy love theme that is for the most part dominated again by strings with the final moments adding keyboard to the mix. The album also features a song performed by America (Love Comes Without Warning) which Goldsmith provides the music for while lyrics are by regular Goldsmith collaborator John Bettis.
