#AtoZChallenge : Only

We’re back again with more fun with the A to Z Challenge.

A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 2 to 3 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use said word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!

Today’s word is “Only”

From Dictionary.com:

Rolling Stones “It’s Only Rock and Roll”

Queens of the Stone Age “If Only”

Billy Joel “Only The Good Die Young”

And that’s my 3 ‘Only’ songs for the day.  Let’s see what ‘Only’ songs you come up with. Share in the comments.

  3. OMG Now I took a similar route as you, but mine being a musical movie & tunes. I was having a hard time with O and now I see yours and I'm thinking dang how come I didn't think of two such great songs! Great job my friend~!

    1. Thanks, Marie! I'll be sure to check out what you've done. I hate not feeling well in the middle of a good hop. I get so far behind.

  4. Only 16 - Dr. Hook, I Only Have Eyes For You - various artists, Only the Young - Journey.

    Janet’s Smiles

    1. You know you can never go too far wrong with Dr Hook - they've made a few appearances in this series. And Journey is a good choice as well.

      Thanks for stopping by, Janet!

  5. "My Only" by Coleske.
    "One and Only" by Adele.
    "Only You" by The Platters.

    1. "Only You" is such a great song! I can't believe I didn't include it.

  6. Mary,

    "Only the Good Die Young" is an excellent hit from the 80s. Billy Joel was at the top of his A-game in those days. Sure haven't heard much about him in recent years. I guess he still purrforms, though.

    Here are a few 'Only' song titles:

    Only Happy When It Rains - Garbage (recent find)
    Only Love Can Break Your Heart - Neil Young
    Only Time - Enya

  7. Hey Cathy!

    I don't know that Billy Joel has done much more 'new' material in the past decade. But I believe he still tours.

    Only Happens When it Rains makes me think of Portland's rainy season (November - April) I saw Garbage in concert long long time ago - ironically - in Portland.

  8. Only the Lonely by Roy Orbison. I love your picks especially Billy Joel
