I love this song...but I actually love a lot of the songs of this album (go figure!). Weird factoid I noticed a while back while watching old, old youtube footage from the early 90's shows is that Billie sometimes (quite often actually) changed the lyrics at the beginning from "girl if you only knew" to "Tre if you only knew" and even "Tre it was always you" once, though the printed lyrics actually read "oh if you only knew". So there's a weird factoid for ya...commence youtube search now lol.

This is my favourite Green Day album and Only of You is one of the best songs on it, I think. I remember guessing how to play it on the guitar and thinking 'Yes, I am invincible.'

I love this song so much and i will always love the way that teenage Billie Joe talks about love, full of passion and really honest. (he keeps doing it but im talking about back in the day)

Could you post link for the video with this "Tre it was always you"? I can't find it.

This is one of my favorite love songs from 1039/Smooth :happy:"The first time I caught a glimpse of you... then all my thoughts were only of you" So concrete and romantic :wub:

Sure, it isn't even the most clear example as the audio kinda sucks (there are better examples out there) but it has been ages since I've watched any of them and I remember this one as it wasn't an actual live video just audio. Anyways here ya go

I've listened to your example video and a few others and I honestly don't hear anything but billie gibberish. Might be a bit of wishful thinking.

Billie gibberish? I have no clue what that is supposed to be or why he loses the power of speech (apparantly) during this song numerous times at the exact same moment resulting in similar sounding words emerging from his mouth. Also this link I posted was not an "example video" it was a request by Jelly Time who wanted to hear that particular clip and I even said it wasn't the clearest when I posted it. It's from 1990 so it's crappy quality but there's ones from 1997 that if you are assed finding you might agree. Then again I doubt you and I will ever agree on anything for some reason. I did love your "wishful thinking" comment though...made me chuckle after a crappy day. *pssst I'm not twelve ;) *

Haha well the name comes from my adoration of the song St Jimmy (I actually have a St Jimmy tattoo), the fact that all the good Jimmy related names were taken so I decided a play on words might be amusing and not over exaggerating when I say Billie Joe and Tre Cool are a huge reason I am still alive (seriously bad time in my life + meeting them = changed perspective and encouragement to keep fighting) so yeah I love those two...and I don't care if the use of the word Trillie is taken up weirdly (hell they know about it and could give two shits lol).

*sorry to others for the off topic post lol*
