The Everly Brothers sang ‘When Will I Be Loved’ in the summer of 1960 and peaked in the charts at number 8, but Linda Ronstadt covered the song in 1975, and her version was an even bigger hit in the US peaking at number 2.
Before one can be loved, one must fulfil a vital prerequisite in order to place oneself in the 'Love Stakes'; one must become a runner in the race. This essentially means that one will never make good in the 'Love Stakes' unless one takes part. In social terms, it helps enormously if you make yourself ‘available’ to be loved; a most unlikely happening if one never pursues interests and activities outside the walls of one’s home. I have never yet met one person yet in my 76 years of life who met and married their milkman or who fell madly in love with their new window cleaner as they exchanged glances through the window pane one wet Wednesday morning. As the Lottery slogan on the television used to say, ‘You have to be in it to win it!’
