"Alone Again Or" is a song originally recorded in 1967 by rock group Love, written by band member Bryan MacLean. It was the opening track on the album Forever Changes, and was also released as a single in the USA, UK, Australia, France and Holland.
Bryan MacLean originally wrote the song, then called "Alone Again", in 1965 for Love's debut album. However, he did not complete it until the recording of Forever Changes in summer of 1967. The song was inspired by his memory of waiting for a girlfriend, and the melody drew loosely on Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kije Suite.
Released as a single at the beginning of 1968, "Alone Again Or" reached #7 on KHJ on 17 April 1968 but only barely "Bubbled Under" the Hot 100 in May 1968, peaking on the Hot 100 on re-release at #99 on 12 September 1970. Over the years it has become regarded as a classic of the era, being ranked #436 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
