Song of the day: The Platters- Only You

the-platters-only-you-power-records

Buck Ram once composed a song called Only You (And You Alone). The song was then recorded by Williams and the Platters in 1954, but had no success. When the Platters recorded the song again in 1955, it was a big hit. This was due to Tony Williams, whose voice broke during recordings and a funny effect in this Only You. When the car of the Platters broke down, he did Ohhhnly You. This, and Ram playing the piano, brought a number 1 hit in the R&B chart and a number 5 in the normal American chart. Enjoy
