The One

Performing hit “Still The One” in ’82, Orleans shines on the Solid Gold stage surrounded by phenomenal, spunky dancers and it’s a sight to see. As we discussed in a few of the previous posts, it was common for bands in the 60’s and 70’s to lip sync to recorded tracks during live performance and this show is no exception. There are even times when lead singer Larry Hoppen forgets to sing along to his own song, but we’re not judging!

Interesting Fact: During the presidential elections of 2004, George W. Bush tried to use this song as his campaign theme but was immediately ordered to cease.

The song was inspired by a couple that Orleans’ guitar player Hall and his wife knew experiencing a divorce at the time, trying to find light in the darkness and hope down the road for the two individuals. Initially Hall’s wife, Joanna, got the ball rolling with the lyrics and the two finished the song together.

“Still The One” is such a classic, feel-good love song that highlights the great things about being with another person, but also the struggles that some must endure to find and keep that connection.

Granted this is not the band’s greatest live performance and Larry can barely hit these notes anymore, but it is nice to see Orleans young and in their prime. Enjoy!

+ Still The One Lyrics +

We’ve been together since way back when
Sometimes I never want to see you again
But I want you to know, after all these years
You’re still the one I want whisperin’ in my ear

You’re still the one — I want to talk to in bed
Still the one — that turns my head
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one

I looked at your face every day
But I never saw it ’til I went away
When winter came, I just wanted to go (wanted to go)
Deep in the desert, I longed for the snow

You’re still the one — that makes me laugh
Still the one — that’s my better half
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one

You’re still the one — that makes me strong
Still the one — I want to take along
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one (yes you are)

Changing, our love is going gold
Even though we grow old, it grows new

You’re still the one — that I love to touch
Still the one — and I can’t get enough
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one

You’re still the one — who can scratch my itch
Still the one — and I wouldn’t switch
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one

You are still the one — that makes me shout
Still the one — that I dream about
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one
You’re still the one, yeah still the one
We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one
