One Alone

First line:
Lonley as a desert breeze, I may wander where I please
1926 The Desert Song

A light-hearted loneliness is portrayed in the opening bars of One Alone from The Desert Song, written in 1926 by the Hungarian-born, naturalized American Sigmund Romberg. This song is part of a unique repertoire of romantic American ‘arias’ that the whole country sang—with gusto—in the first half of the century.
