One Night Only

by Jennifer Hudson

"One Night Only" music video performed by Jennifer Hudson
You want all my love and my devotion
You want my loving soul right on the line
I have no doubt that I could love you forever
The only trouble is, you really don't have the time

You've got one night only, one night only
That's all you have to spare
One night only, let's not pretend to care

One night only, one night only
Come on big baby come on
One night only, we only have till dawn

In the morning this feeling will be gone
It has no chance going on
Something so right has got no chance to live
So let's forget about chances, this one night I will give

One night only, one night only
You'll be the only one
One night only, then you're on your own

One night only, one night only
There's nothing more to say
One night only, words get in the way

One night only, one night only, one night only
Great rendition by Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress Jennifer Hudson. If listening to this song does not bring a tear to your eyes, you seriously do not have a soul. Even if Adolf Hitler were to cry like a cow listening to this song, no one would call him a wuss. And we all know what a bad ass he was.

As I've mentioned in a previous post, I love both versions of this song. Listening to the disco version just lifts your spirits and gets your heart pumping, albeit a slutty way.

"One Night Only" music video by Beyonce

It's just remarkable how a song about a one night stand (I think) could invoke so many emotions just by changing the beat of the song but retaining the lyrics. Just comes to show how powerful music can be to the soul.

I would really like to watch the Broadway version of Dreamgirls, if given the chance. I'm sure I'll like it as much.


  1. hey babe, can't watch your beyonce's video.

    ooh. have u seen the duet of shakira & beyonce? had me confused for a moment. the song's not that wonderful, but i think the video might drive u nuts.
    i'll send it to u if i remember ;)

  2. sorry about that. i've corrected the video problem.

    watching beyonce shake her bootie always gets my heart pumping! shakira however is a real turnoff.

    i wanted to write a blog entry comparing beyonce and shakira's dancing (especially shaking the hips) but too lazy... :P
