#497: The Charlatans UK-The Only One I Know (Top 500 Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)

#497
(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Song: "The Only One I Know"
Artist: The Charlatans UK
Release Date: September,1990
From the Album: Some Friendly (1990)



Quick Take: A huge smash hit in the summer of 1990 in the UK and still a deserved classic from the high watermark of the Madchester/baggy scene. With Collins' keyboards freely and gleefully borrowing from Jon Lord's classic arrangement of "Hush" for Deep Purple, the band created a pumping garage/beat classic, with just enough polite funk to make things right.
