Welcome to our must-watch videos list of “I Want You To Want Me” cover songs! This song was originally performed by the American rock band Cheap Trick and released in 1977. They were formed in 1973 consisting of frontman Robin Zander, guitarist Rick Nielsen, bassist Tom Petersson, and drummer Bun E. Carlos. Previously calling themselves ‘Sick Man of Europe’ in 1972-1973, the band adopted the name ‘Cheap Trick’ in 1973. There’s a theory, possibly non-factual, but we love trivia. The band’s name was inspired by Peterssen’s comment when they were at a Slade concert about the band using ‘every cheap trick in the book’ as part of their act.

As a legacy, Cheap Trick was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.

Cheap Trick

Let’s begin by our journey watching the original “I Want You To Want Me” by Cheap Trick. Interestingly, the song didn’t chart in the United States but was a top single in Japan. The success of the song and another single led to the band’s 1978 concert at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. The live version of the song, released in 1979 from the album Cheap Tricks in Budokan reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. This became their biggest selling single and certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. It also reached #2 in Canada’s RPM national single hits chart, gaining a Gold certification in 1979. It was also the band’s highest-charting single in Britain reaching at #29.

I Want You To Want Me Lyrics

I Want You To Want Me Cover

I want you to want me, I need you to need me, I’d love you to love me
I’m begging you to beg me
I want you to want me, I need you to need me, I’d love you to love me

I’ll shine up the old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
I’ll get home early from work
If you say that you love me

Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you crying?
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you crying?
Feeling all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dying
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you crying?
