Three remakes of the song have been UK chart hits, the first Loopa Scava Meets Cayetano - Up And Down by the Bay City Rollers and the Tourists matching the number 4 peak of the Dusty Springfield original, while the remake by Samantha Fox peaked at number Ryder, who would later be a member of the Breakawayshad been a member of a vocal chorale, the Vernons Girls. Ryder paraphrases Franz as saying I Only Want To Be With You - Bay City Rollers - Dedication we need something which is going to put this girl into the charts, because everybody is knocking her, everybody is saying she'll never make it [solo] - have you got a song that's a guaranteed hit?
Franz, and then Springfield, approved the song, which Springfield recorded in a 25 October session at Olympic Studiosarranged and conducted by I Only Want To Be With You - Bay City Rollers - Dedication Raymonde, and recorded by engineer Keith Grant.
Jean Ryder was included in the vocal chorale on the session. For unknown reasons, a version with Dusty's unadulterated vocals was rejected. Raymonde's arrangement is unmistakable, with its relentless "ticker-ticker" beat and cascading drum rolls, full-on choirs and "Tower of Power" horn section pitched against soaring rock strings. It set the production standard for Springfield's later hits, such as "Stay Awhile" and "Little by Little". Springfield also recorded the song with an almost identical arrangement in German, with the title "Auf dich nur wart' ich immerzu".
However the Springfield original version had had a significantly stronger UK chart run holding at number 4 for 4 weeks — as opposed to the Bay City Rollers remake's one week chart peak — with the original's Top 50 tenure of 18 weeks being twice as long as the remake's.
Conversely in the US the Bay City Rollers' remake had a Billboard Hot tenure of 15 weeks while the Springfield original had maintained a Hot presence for 10 weeks in total.
Inthe song was also covered by The Touristsa band which included Annie Lennox on vocals. This was the band's biggest hit.

Rea cited " Dusty Springfield 's 60's gem 'I Only Want to Be with You'" as one of several tracks which "Nicolette sings in an awkward warble, devoid of any emotional range": Bottle It Up (Remix) - Various - Spring Music Sampler 2008 Larson's "I Only Want to Be with You" I Only Want To Be With You - Bay City Rollers - Dedication similarly dismissive reaction from Tom Long of the Santa Cruz Sentinelwho rated the original hit a "swell oldie [that's an] ingratiating piece of fluff" and Larson's remake "awful [although] despite uninspired vocals and sheet musicianship [it] sounds good on the radio simply because the song itself sounds good and tickles forotten memory synapses",  and also Bill Provick of the Ottawa Citizen who opined Larson gave "a rather lacklustre reading of [a] normally effervescent pop-rock classic.
Despite becoming Larson's fourth single to rank on the Hot chart in Billboard magazine - and her first Hot entry since - "I Only Want to Be with You" would prove a Top 40 shortfall stalling at 53 in September Larson's label WB Recordselecting not to issue a second single from All Dressed Up and No Place to Gowere motivated by the underperformance of that album and its one single to end Larson's label tenure. Fox would recall the song as being the first song she ever learned to sing, the Dusty Springfield original version being among a stack of singles her mother handed down to Fox when Fox was aged ten.
Released as the follow-up single to the album's title cut"I Only Wanna Be With You" was promoted with a music video which included scenes of Fox hunting through trash cans, dancing, fireworks, and the singer in bed with her bespectacled lover.
Mexican singer Luis Miguel recorded a version of the song, titled "Ahora te puedes marchar" "Now you can leave" which was released as the first single from his Grammy-nominated album Soy como quiero serthe first album recorded by the singer under the WEA record label. The lyrics are considerably different from the original song as long as the song relates about a guy rejecting a girl that is wanting to reform a relationship rather than the unconditional love shown in Dusty Springfield version.
