My Only One

Album: A Curious Thing (2010)


  • This song is McDonald's tribute to Michael Jackson and also touches on the deaths of her grandparents. The Scottish singer told the Daily Star March 6, 2010: "The first concert I ever went to was Michael Jackson at Wembley Stadium, as I was a massive fan. Most people's first gigs are really embarrassing. But I've got a really cool one. I absolutely loved him and I thought it was a massive loss when he died. No-one will ever come close to what he achieved. He was one in a million. When I get emotional I get out my guitar, and when he died that song just came pouring out."
