Only You


This is your climactic falling in love song, for when you’re all starry eyed at the sock hop. This is the song for when you’ve won the person of your dreams and you’re all prepared for the happily ever after to begin. In other words, this song is cornier than a basket of elotes. And it should, by all rights, be unbearable. But it’s Roy Orbison, he with the magic voice. With a voice like that, who needs good material? Well, you still need good material, and there are certainly things that even a singer of Orbison’s caliber can’t elevate. This here is a case of material that’s thoroughly mid-level on paper, but reaches for greatness in the hands of the right artist.
