“One Night Only” – Dreamgirls

Music: Henry Krieger   Lyrics: Tom Eyen

A ballad and a disco version of this number appear as competing songs on the radio in this musical about girl group The Dreams loosely based on The Supremes.  While The Supremes played their last performance with Diana Ross on The Ed Sullivan Show on this day in 1969, this one night only event occurred several times before.  In fact, The Supremes guest-starred on The Ed Sullivan Show a total of 17 times.
