An Oldie That Was Played in a Disney Tv-Movie From the 80's (The Movie, That Is)

I am looking for an old song (must be from the 60's, methinks) that

was played in an Disney animation musical TV movie from the 80's.

The film had intermezzo scenes in it, where Jiminy Cricket was the

host. Amongst the featured tracks were "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go"

by Wham!, "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees, and "I Only Have Eyes For

You" by The Flamingos. There also was a Michael Jackson parody called

"Eat It".

Now, the song I'm looking for is played during a clip about the dogs

from Disney's "101 Dalmatians". The itself is a slow ballad, and the

final words are "only you".

Well, I hope this will be enough. Good luck then!

  1. This could well be"Only You" by the Platters. You can find the lyrics

    and a midi file at: http://orion.spaceports.com/~mmp/letras/OnlyYou.html

    The song ends with the words:

    Only you can make this change in me

    for it's true, you are my destiny

    When you hold my hand

    I understand the magic that you do

    You're my dream come true

    my one and only you

    One and only you

    Only you was the Platters first Top Ten single in 1955

    (http://www.theplatters.net/)

    Search strategy: 1. "only you" lyrics

    2. "Only you" Platters

  2. I'm very sorry, but the song I'm looking for is most certainly NOT the

    Platter's "Only You". Come on, would I really be asking such an

    elementary question?

    Again, the song's final words are "only you". And something I just

    remembered: somewhere in the middle of the song, there are the words

    "Help me, help me pleeeeease". I hope this helps you find the answer.

    Good luck!

  3. Well, the Platters song ends with the words "(one and) only you", it

    is a slow ballad and it dates from the appropriate period. Therefore,

    I consider I was justified in proposing it as an answer since it meets

    your criteria. As for whether that is elementary or not, I wouldn't

    know, since I have never heard of the Platters and do not know whether

    they are famous or obscure <shrug>

    I'll have another look and see what else I can find.

  4. I've looked on a number of search engines, and cannot find any lyrics

    that contain "help me, help me please" and finish with "only".

    I did find lists of Disney-related mailing lists and newsgroups where

    there might be Disney fans who possibly have recorded the TV shows:
