One in a Million - Aaliyah #TuesdayTune

This  is in my top five favourite songs of all time; I've been listening to it a lot over the last couple of weeks.

Aaliyah, One in a Million

"Your love is one in a million
It goes on and on and on
You give me a really good feeling
All day long."
The song is the second track on the One in a Million album which was released in 1996.  It's edgy pop R&B, and was written by the ever talented Missy Elliott and Timbaland.  I remember it standing out a mile at the time as different to anything I'd heard. 
It's stuck with me since, and I still listen to the album and this song in particular regularly.  To me, it hasn't aged at all, and would still stand up in today's charts.

Tragically, Aaliyah died in 2001 - an unbelievable 13 years ago.  I clearly remember hearing it on the news.  Rest in peace - you touched my life.
