“No News:” The First Song That Made Lonestar Top the Chart

Which do you prefer, to hear a piece of bad news or no news at all? Sometimes we’d rather hear the bad news because at least we know what happened rather than constantly thinking about something. When there’s no news, we keep on thinking, and we start to become anxious. We wonder all the time trying to look for answers that might not come. That is exactly what the narrator felt like in the song “No News.”

The “No News” Content

The Lonestar band released their single “No News” in 1996. In that song, the narrator said he was an understanding man. Therefore, he allows his lover to sort out whatever problem she has. He lets her find herself first. However, as he waits for her, he heard nothing. This then makes him worried and wonder where she is.

She could telephone, tell a friend
Tell a lie about where she’s been
Send a pigeon, send a fax
Write it on a postal pack
Send a signal up in smoke
Tap it out in morse code
I’d prefer a bad excuse
To no news
