Blue- One Love: Top 10 Singles in US and UK /Memorable Chorus of a Song

Blue- One Love
United States- Efforts were made to release the album “One Love” by Blue. Nevertheless, it didn’t push through. So the guys never had a top 10 hit and nothing even charted.

United Kingdom- Blue maintained their success in United Kingdom for generating hits from their second album “One Love”. Three official singles were released. To see their top 10 singles in UK charts, check below:
One Love- #3
Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word (with Elton John)- #1
Breathe Easy- #4
Obviously, all of the official singles from the album “One Love” charted and peaked inside the top 10 or even top 5. “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”, a collaboration with Elton John, the original singer of the song, was the only number 1 hit. “One Love” is still considered a hit for reaching number 3. While the ballad “Breathe Easy” was a hit for reaching number 4. Another song “Supersexual” was not released as a single in Unoted Kingdom.

“Sorry Means to Be the Hardest Word” was the most successful single from the album “One Love”. However, I am picking up “One Love” to share because it has a good lyrics and an original hit from the guys. The song is not just about intimate love rather, about universal love. It was also very successful in Asia and became a chart-topper in our country so I am sharing the song. Check the chorus of the hit below and watch the video to enjoy the song:

One Love (Chorus)
One love – for the mother’s pride
One love – for the times we cried
One love – gotta stay alive
I will survive
One love – for the city streets
One love – for the hip-hop beats
One love, Oh I do believe
One love is all we need
