“The One to Sing the Blues” is a song by the British rock band Motörhead, which Epic Records released. It reached number 45 in the UK Singles Chart. It is the opening track on the 1916 album. It was the band’s first single.

Although its official release date is 5 January 1991, Lemmy stated it “came out a few weeks earlier – on my birthday, as a matter of fact”, which is 24 December 1990 continuing to say “that’s a really great song – maybe we’ll put it back in the set one of these days”.

Critical reception
In review of 5 January 1991 Paul Elliott of Sounds found the main riff of this song “somewhere between Thin Lizzy’s ‘Sha La La’ and ‘Massacre’, with some killer lead from Würzel.” In the end Elliott summarized: “Still the ugliest, still the loudest.”

Single track listing
All songs were written by Lemmy, Würzel, Phil Campbell, and Phil Taylor.
