Rick Astley has impressed fans with his cover of R.E.M's 'The One I Love'. The original song was released in 1987 and is a popular radio dedication to loved ones, relying on a misinterpretation of its refrain, "This one goes out to the one I love." However, subsequent lyrics in the same verse contradict the love song interpretation and suggest a darker theme.
