Rock Ballad of The Week: The Shadows “Let Me Be The One”

8 Comments

Tonight, tonight, tonight.

Let me be the one who’s lovin’ you tonight

Let me be the one who really holds you tight

I’ll even bring along a magic moon

Just to make you feel alright

So let me be the one who’s lovin’ you tonight.

Let me be the one who takes you by the hand

Let me be the one who always understands.

Ev’rybody knows we’ve been good friends

But I think the time is right

So let me be the one who’s lovin’ you tonight.

You and I could have an affair

Make sweet music go anywhere

Building highways

Taking a bend

As long as I know you really care

Won’t you show that you care-oh come on

Let me be the one who’s lovin’ you tonight


The Shadows are a British instrumental rock group, and were Cliff Richard’s backing band from 1958 to 1968, (though they have collaborated again on numerous reunion tours) . The Shadows have placed 69 UK charted singles from the 1950s to the 2000s, 35 credited to the Shadows and 34 to Cliff Richard and the Shadows. The group, who were in the forefront of the UK beat-group boom,  were the first backing band to emerge as stars. As pioneers of the four-member instrumental format, the band consisted of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass guitar and drums. Their range covers pop, rock, surf rock and ballads with a jazz influence.

  1. What a lovely “oldie” … I was already 5 years old… lol! I did not remember it was a song contest song. It’s a very nice one. Like that light style. Has a bit from The Beatles, don’t you think?

  2. I agree with Erika, that I hear what appears to be a Beatles flavor here. Cute tune
