"You're the One" is a song by Yoko Ono, originally released in 1984 on Ono's and John Lennon's duet album Milk and Honey. The song was also on the compilation albums Onobox and Walking on Thin Ice.


The song's lyrics compare John Lennon and Yoko's Ono's relationship to be viewed by society as Laurel and Hardy, but viewed by the couple as Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Christgau, in his review of Milk and Honey, stated that "You're the One" and its "cricket synthesizers," along with Ono's song "Sleepless Night", "are confident personal elaborations of a tradition she comes to secondhand."[2]
