Flashback Friday: Kelly Osbourne ‘One Word’

This weeks Flashback Friday song belongs to fashion designer, singer, actress, and overall flawless queen, Kelly Osbourne. “One Word” is the first and only single from her sophomore album Sleeping in the Nothing, which was released in 2005. Written and produced by Linda Perry, “One Word” is smooth synth-pop dancefloor number that eases you in with a spacey, synthesized intro and sample of 1980s Visage song “Fade to Grey“. Kelly glides through the song effortlessly. I’m still so obsessed with this song, it was ahead of its time. “One Word” was successful in the UK and charted at #1 on the US Hot Dance Airplay Chart. KELLY COME BACK!!

  1. I’m totally obssed with this song!

  2. what is this?
    miss piggy doing some sort of film noire thing?

    1. “Miss Piggy” is laughing with her millions. Kelly wins! Flawless victory. Enjoy your caravan vacation to Skegness.

  3. this sounds like Christina Aguilera ‘Keeps getting better’

    1. Other way around.. this came out before. “Keeps Getting Better” was 2008.

    2. Not surprising, both songs were written and produced by Linda Perry.

  4. Now THIS is a BRILLIANT song, I’m still obsessed with this years later, still have the CD Single, amazing, she needs to return to music with more songs like One Word, and Datruth? More like lies, get a taste in music….

  5. This is such a great track! Completely forgot about this. Great throwback song!!!

  6. I totally forgot this one!

  7. Nice overproduced vocals.

  8. Brilliant and yes it was definitely before its time.

  9. I loved this song when I was little. Its STILL an amazing song! Thanks for featuring it. SO moody.

  10. I own the album and I love it. Pop greatness.
    Highlights are Suburbia, Secret Lover & Red Light.

  11. i remember seeing this on mtv! nice song!

  12. Still one of my favourites. Loved it when it was airing on the radio’s here in SA and still loving it now.

  13. The song itself is not bad, quite catchy.. No doubt credit must go to Linda Perry though.. I don’t dislike her, but I can’t really understand some people thinking she is amazing.. She can’t really sing or act that well, isn’t really particularly pretty either.. She’s famous because of her parents and that’s it really. Not dissing her, but genuinely don’t understand it. :/
