I Want You To Want Me – Cheap Trick

July 15, 2021

Today’s song of the day is Cheap Trick’s “I Want You To Want Me.” Cheap Trick is still active today and just released In Another World in 2021. Be on the lookout for upcoming tour dates and catch their classics and future hits live!

Fun Facts 

  • The rock band Cheap Trick’s original lineup consisted of Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson, and Bun E. Carlos back when they formed in 1974.
  • “I Want You To Want Me” was originally recorded for the 1977 album In Color. The song was poorly received and didn’t even chart. The band members themselves admit that the arrangement and production were a bit on the lackluster side.
  • However, this soon-to-be favorite became a sensation when it was reworked, and the live version from a concert in Tokyo in 1978 was recorded and released. This time, the high energy and upbeat lyrics made it to the Top 10 in 1979.
  • Today, almost everyone has heard this crowd-pleasing bop, and it remains a consistent radio jam and well-loved pick at bars and events the world over.

Ah

Ah

If you want my love you got it

When you need my love you got it

I won’t hide it

I won’t throw your love away, ooh

If you want my love you got it

When you need my love you got it

I won’t hide it

I won’t throw your love away, ooh

Yes, I thought you were a mystery girl

A special girl in this crazy old world

You couldn’t see me when I laid eyes on you

Lonely is only a place

You don’t know what it’s like

You can’t fight it

It’s a hole in my heart, in my heart

If you want my love you got it

When you need my love you got it

I won’t hide it

I won’t throw your love away, ooh

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

You hold the secrets of love in this world

I’m hypnotized by your every word

A special face, a special voice

A special smile in my life

‘Cause lonely is only a place

You don’t know what it’s like

You can’t fight it

It’s a hole in my heart, in my heart

If you want my love you got it

When you need my love you got it

I won’t hide it

I won’t throw your love away, ooh

If you want my love you got it

When you need my love you got it

I won’t hide it

I won’t throw your love away, ooh

If you want my love you got it

When you need my love you got it

You won’t hide it

You won’t throw your love away, ooh
