Charted: 5
  • We've been together since way back when
    Sometimes I never want to see you again
    But I want you to know, after all these years
    You're still the one I want whisperin' in my ear

    You're still the one I want to talk to in bed
    Still the one that turns my head
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one

    I looked at your face every day
    But I never saw it 'til I went away
    When winter came, I just wanted to go (wanted to go)
    Deep in the desert, I longed for the snow

    You're still the one that makes me laugh
    Still the one that's my better half
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one

    You're still the one that makes me strong
    Still the one I want to take along
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one (yes you are)

    Changing, our love is going gold
    Even though we grow old, it grows new

    You're still the one that I love to touch
    Still the one and I can't get enough
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one

    You're still the one who can scratch my itch
    Still the one and I wouldn't switch
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one

    You are still the one that makes me shout
    Still the one that I dream about
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one
    You're still the one, yeah still the one
    We're still having fun, and you're still the one Writer/s: John Hall, Johanna Hall

  • Susan from Atlanta, GeorgiaI vividly remember in 1976 when this song was used by ABC for their new fall line-up and then again, as someone mentioned, a celebratory song for their being #1 in 1977, and I just got sick to death of it. That happens to me when any song is overplayed, I guess, even if I am the one who overplayed it. Go figure. Generally speaking, though, it is a good song.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn July 25th 1976, "Still The One" by Orleans entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #69; and on October 17th, 1976 it peaked at #5 {for 1 week} and spent 18 weeks on the Top 100...
    Between 1975 and 1979 the quintet had five Top 100 records; with two making the Top 10, their other Top 10 record was "Dance With Me", it reached #6 {for 1 week} on October 12th, 1975.
  • Ken from Pensacola Beach, FlI remember when ABC used this as a promotional for one of their new seasons in the late 70's. If you have an affinity for this or any Orleans tune, I highly recommend their "Still The One" album. The unique thing about Orleans is that almost all of their songs are upbeat pieces about hope. That one album got me through a divorce in the early 2000's. Wonderful stuff.
  • Ken from Louisville, KyABC used this to celebrate the first time in its history (1977-78) it was the number one rated television network in the U.S. They slightly altered they lyrics to "You're still having fun/And we're still the one" They did an elaborate music video featuring many ABC stars holding up their index finger in the "we're number one" salute and broadcast it constantly that season. The following season, when they were aganin number one, ABC did another similar music video promo, only this time they used the Oak Ridge Boys song "You're The One" (changed to "We're The One").
  • Brad from Barry, TxI heard Orleans perform this song on a "Best of the 70s" special on PBS a couple of years ago. They sounded exactly the same as they did thirty years ago. Still a great band and a great song.
  • John from Fort Worth, TxI am a 47-year-old man and the longer I hear this song the more I love it.
  • Marie from Ithaca, NyOrleans used to play here in central NY before they made it 'big' (and a few times afterwards). There was NOTHING like an Orleans concert! My husband and I were dating back then and went to several Orleans concerts to gether, so this is 'our' song. Anyone ever here "Sweet Joahanna?" it's a very rare Orleans song John wrote about his wife!
  • Pete from Nowra, AustraliaIs also the theme song for the Ch 9 TV network here in Australia.

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
