Thanks For The Memories: Songs Of Yesteryear...THE PLATTERS - ONLY YOU



Well geeezzzzz...I just don't know if posting this love song daily and talking about it is gonna work...because I'm too mushy/gushy about my geezer...and you're going to get SICK of it...SO let's just try to talk about the song ITSELF this morning and how it relates to ALL of us...you and me...how bout it?

This song was written in.....OH POOP...I forgot to write the year down...but it's as old as most of us reading this blog...and way older than some....It was written and made popular way back in my day of the Cave Men and Women....And it was written by Vince Clark.  Clark had put much thought into this love ballad and thought it would go straight to the top of the charts...but alas...it bombed...and why in the world would a song so filled with sweet love and romance like this one is...bomb.....The Platters who were trying to make the song famous...had no clue. 
So one day they were out riding in the car on the way to who knows where...and they were singing and practicing this song in the car and the driver hit a big bump in the road and the guy singing the "Only you" part....was caught off guard and was singing the 'only you' at that very moment...and when they hit the bump...he went .... 'OoHHHnly youuuuuuuu'  and everybody stopped singing and yelled ..."THAT'S IT"   and sure enough...they started using that "OoHHHnly youuuuuuuu' in the song from then on...and it immediately went to the top of the charts.

Well now isn't that a neat thing to know?  This little 2nd avenue of Bird's Eye View may end up fun and informative after all...

But let me just add...ALL these old love songs...remind me of my geezer.  And they just immediately fill my heart with warm and fuzzy...and they just make me want to run right to him and just hug the gooins out of him...Now "the GEEZER"....he was a real ladies man when he was a young teenager....so when HE hears some of these old love songs...It may make HIM think of one of YOU....hahaha   Doesn't bother meeeeeeeeeee....you see who GOT him...don't ya...hahaha    And we've got a grip on each other that nothing or no one could pull apart...



            Thanks For The Memories:  Songs Of yesteryear
                       will be posted before the blog some, many or most mornings...hahaha
                                                  I can't get more honest than that.

But here's the kicker...no matter what I talk about in my blog each morning...By posting a daily love song from yesteryear and talking a little about it...there will always be a little love coming daily from me...to you.

                                      The very best love stories just have no ending...
                       and I'm just so very blessed to be living one of those love stories.

                             BE THE CHANGE and LIVE AND LOVE WITH PASSION


ONLY YOU...lyrics
Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright
Only you and you alone
can thrill me like you do
and fill my heart with love for only you
Only you
can make this change in me
For it's true
you are my destiny
When you hold my hand,
I understand the magic that you do[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/only-you-lyrics-the-platters.html ]
You're my dream come true
my one and only you,
Only you and you alone
can thrill me like you do
and fill my heart with love for only you
Only you can make this change in me
For it's true
you are my destiny
When you hold my hand,
I understand the magic that you do
You're my dream come true
my one my one my one and only
