Only You Can Rock Me
by UFO

Album: Obsession (1978)

Songfacts®:

  • According to Pete Way in his autobiography A Fast Ride Out Of Here..., Obsession is the band's definitive studio album. He said he is particularly proud of "Only You Can Rock Me."

    Running to 4 minutes 8 seconds, the opening track was co-written with Phil Mogg and Michael Schenker. Pete said: "I'd got the basic idea for it, a driving rocker, and being the genius that he is, Michael came up with the section halfway through – that sort of dreamy-sounding bridge and his soaring solo." >>
