"Only You" is a ballad written by musician Vince Clarke. He wrote it while with Depeche Mode, and offered it to them when he was leaving. They declined, and Clarke recorded it after forming the duo Yazoo with Alison Moyet. It was an instant success, hitting number two in the UK, and charting in the U.S. (number sixty-seven, Billboard Hot 100), a feat only attained by one other Yazoo single (coincidentally, that single was "Situation," the original UK B-side of "Only You"). "Only You" also made the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart at number thirty-eight.

En cualquier caso, Only You suena mucho mejor en la voz de Alison. No me la imagino con Dave Gahan, en todo caso con Martin L. Gore, pero aún no se soltaba tanto en la faceta de solista como ahora, y tampoco, que no. Mucho mejor que Depeche Mode la rechazara y Vince se la tuviera que dejar cantar a Alison, nos hizo a todos un gran favor. A veces la providencia parece obedecer a los designios divinos, fijo.
