Ah the beauty of ‘only’ songs – those classics that feature one pivotal word within their title. What word is it that is pivotal you ask? Well, that word is what one suspects – ONLY! Think about it, how many songs feature the ubiquitous, inescapable adjective, adverb, or conjunction? The answer is a lot. One list can’t house so many ‘only’ songs. That said the 13-featured songs of ‘Songs With ‘Only’ In The Title (Volume 1),’ is a starting place. After such a wacky, melodramatic intro, here are the ‘only’ songs in all their ‘only’ glory!
1) Sam Smith, “I’m Not The Only One” (In The Lonely Hour, 2014)
“You say I’m crazy / cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done.” Oh Sam, we don’t think you’re crazy, unless it’s crazy in love or you just have a keen sense of perception. Of course on the exceptional In The Lonely Hour, there is room for more than one romantic joint besides the ubiquitous “Stay With Me.” ‘Course in the case of “I’m Not The Only One,” ole boy truly isn’t the only one – his boo is unfaithful! Oh snap!
