Love Island 2020 fans love the song “Only You”



Last night’s episode (Monday, January 27) of Love Island finally touched us.

After two disappointing weeks of the inaugural winter season, which saw virtually no pairs forming, we finally had moments of pure pathos.

While Connor Durman was kicked out of the villa by his fellow islanders, his partner Sophie Piper found himself alone. Her departure made Sophie realize that she had legitimate feelings for Connor, leaving her in floods of tears after his release.

And what better way to amplify the emotions than by layering clips of Sophie crying and moping in the villa with a heart-wrenching soundtrack?

So what’s the song they played in Love Island Episode 14 of Series 6?

Sophie only wants Connor!

During Sophie’s first morning in the Cape Town villa without Connor, the song played is Becky Hill’s interpretation of “Only You”.

The English singer-songwriter rose to prominence after appearing on The Voice UK in 2012. Although she didn’t win, her performances on the show solidified her credibility as an artist and Becky quickly landed roles singing on Electronic / Dance tracks.

She was the very first Voice contestant to land a UK No.1 single with Oliver Heldens’ “Gecko (Overdrive)”.

Becky released her cover of “Only You” in 2019 as a single.

From originals to covers

The OG ‘Only You’ was written by Vince Clarke (of Depeche Mode) who first recorded it in 1982. Vince recorded it with singer Alison Moyet, when they were in their duo, Yazoo .

A remix of the song hit the charts again in 1999.

Most recently, Alison Moyet reissued the song in 2014, which was later used by British label Burberry’s fashion show, and then an orchestral version was used in the Boots 2017 Christmas commercial.

All the songs – Becky’s version and the originals – are available to listen to on major streaming services.

Other songs from episode 14

“Only You” wasn’t the only song that captured viewers’ attention.

The night Connor left the villa, “Anymore” by Declan J Donovan played in the background. The Love Island soundtrack previously propelled aspiring singer-songwriters to fame, so maybe it will be with Declan!

As the Islanders prepared for their dates with the two new Bombshells, Demi and Wallace, Martin Solveig’s ‘Do It Right’ (feat. Tkay Maidza) performed.

Finally, the episode was left on a cliffhanger as Finn’s date with Paige became more than friendly. The musical choice was appropriate as Yasmeen’s “Trouble” ended the episode.
