"Only You (And You Alone)" (often shortened to "Only You") is a pop song composed by Buck Ram. It was recorded most successfully by The Platters, with lead vocals by Tony Williams, in 1955.
In 1974, Ringo Starr covered this song for his album Goodnight Vienna at the suggestion of John Lennon, and it became a number six hit on the US pop chart and reached number one on the easy listening chart in early 1975.. Lennon plays acoustic guitar on the track, and recorded a guide vocal which was kept by producer Richard Perry. Harry Nilsson sings harmony vocals and appears with Starr in the amusing music video filmed on top of the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles. Lennon's vocal version appears on his Anthology box set.
