"This One" is a single from Paul McCartney's 1989 album, Flowers in the Dirt. The song reached number 18 on the UK singles chart.[1][2] It also reached number 8 on the Ö3 Austria Top 40 in Austria, number 31 in the Dutch Top 40 in the Netherlands, number 40 on the Media Control Charts in Germany and number 14 in Japan.[3][4][5]

The single includes two songs recorded during the sessions for CHOBA B CCCP album: "I Wanna Cry" and "I'm In Love Again". The latter appeared in a slightly edited form than the version released on 1991 international edition of CHOBA B CCCP.

Like other songs from Flowers in the Dirt, despite the song's modest chart success, to date it has not been included on any McCartney compilation album.

Reception[edit]

Allmusic called the song "lovely".[6] Rolling Stone opined: "This One," likewise, extends its cute, lyrical conceit for too long and winds up taxing the listener's patience.[7] The song reached number 95 on the Europe Top 200.
