It seems like dreams I've always have
Could be, should be making me glad
But why am I blue?
It's up to you to explain

I'm thinking maybe, baby, I'll go away
Someday, someway you'll come and say
It's you that I need
Maybe you'll be pleading in vain

It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around and finally found
The somebody who could make me be blue
Could make me be true or even be glad
Just to be sad, thinking of you

Some others I've seen, might never be mean
Might never be cross or try to be boss
But they wouldn't do
For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults I love you still

It had to be you,
Wonderful you, it had to be you

    General CommentI love this song. It's an old jazz standard. I find it about two people who are really good friends and well they kinda find out that they're basically meant to be and it's just that "Oh god it just HAD to be you, huh?" sort of way. They looked all around for that one and it was them all along adn they're like "oh man it just HAD to be you huh?" :P that's the way I see it atleast

    General CommentI think this song is really about someone trying to figure out who gave him herpes, but he's having trouble because there are so many possible sources. I think "thrill" is code for "veneral disease".

    General CommentI have the Dinah Shore version and I really love it! I havent listened to Tony's version but Im sure its just as beautiful. As much as I love rock music, I think Jazz is my favourite genre when it really comes down to it. Jazz makes me feel like dancing on my toes, spinning around in a cute little dress ;)
