Song of the Day Feb 14

February 14, 2024

This month I’m focusing on Love Songs from the 70s.

Today our song is:  Baby I’m a Want You

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Baby I'm-a Want You" is a song by American soft rock band Bread. The single was released in October 1971 and became the title track for the album of the same name, released in January 1972.

It was one of Bread's highest-charting singles in both the U.S. and UK. In the U.S., it reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November 1971, the third of Bread's four top-five hits ("Make It with You", No. 1 in 1970; "If", No. 4 earlier in 1971; and "Everything I Own", from the same album, No. 5 in 1972). "Baby I'm-a Want You" reached the top of the Easy Listening chart and rose to No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1972.

It was certified as a gold record by the RIAA. As with virtually all of the band's well-known recordings, the song was both written and produced by the band's lead vocalist, David Gates.




  1. When hubby and I were first dating, we were sappy young romantics, and this was "OUR" song. Thanks for the memories, Mary! ☺

  2. You can't talk about love songs from the '70's without throwing in David Gates and Bread.

  3. I always liked BREAD (the band).
    The song 'Make It With You' really takes me way, way back to a wonderful time in my life. Hearing it nowadays actually makes me a li'l bit sad-like. It's that 'Goldenshadow' thing for me.
