“Only You”

February 23rd, 2005

PBS Kids is running a self-promo between programs that shows kids and PBS characters playing on a beach. It’s black and white with splashes of green and a catchy tune is playing in the background. I couldn’t find any reference to the song anywhere so I wrote PBS. And they wrote back today with the info! Here it is:

    Song: Only You
    Album: Uncommon Denominators
    Artist: New Rythm and Blues Quartet (NRBQ)
    Released: 1986

And, bonus, it’s on iTunes. Just search for NRBQ.

Update: Lyrics

Only you, no one else anymore
Only you
‘Cause I know you will remember us all
Because you have never been pretending
Only you

Only you know we’ve taken so long
Only you
And only you can create a new song
Only you, my only inspiration
Only you

I’ll always be as I am
And I’ll always give a helping hand
to who needs it
I’ll always do what I can

I’ll always be as I am
And I’ll always give a helping hand
to who needs it
I’ll always do what I can

Only you look for good in us all
Only you
Because of you life is easier now
And to you my love is never ending
Only you

Only you
