    "The One and Only" is a popular song written by Nik Kershaw and recorded by the British singer Chesney Hawkes. Produced by Kershaw and Alan Shacklock, Hawkes's recording was featured in the film 1991 Buddy's Song which starred Hawkes as the eponymous Buddy and Roger Daltrey as his father. The film performed moderately well at the UK box office, but the song was a massive hit in the country's music charts, spending five weeks at number one on the UK singles chart in March-April 1991.
    The song was later featured in the film Doc Hollywood, also 1991 (starring Michael J. Fox) and became a hit in the USA, peaking at no. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in May 1991.(
