It was an instant success in 1982, hitting number two in the UK, and charting in the U.S. (number sixty-seven, Billboard Hot 100), a feat only attained by one other Yazoo single (coincidentally, that single was 'Situation' the original UK B-side of 'Only You'). 'Only You' also made the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart at number thirty-eight.
A remix of 'Only You' made the UK Top 40 again in 1999, while reaching number sixteen on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
There was no video released when this single was originally released. Kute records released a live version to promote the single.
The music video for the new version was created using the Houdini 3D animation software package.
Although not a Christmas song, it has become a popular song to play at that time of year. This is probably due to the Flying Pickets version being the UK Christmas Number One in 1983.
