Song of the Day Feb 8

February 8, 2024

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

Today our song is:  I’d Love You to Want Me

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"I'd Love You to Want Me" is a song by American singer-songwriter Lobo. It was released in September 1972 as the second single from his second album Of a Simple Man.

The song was Lobo's highest charting hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it spent two weeks at No. 2 in November. The single was the second of four of his songs to hit No. 1 on the Easy Listening chart, where it had a one-week stay at that top spot in December 1972. It became a gold record.

When released in the United Kingdom in 1972, the song failed to reach the UK Singles Chart; however, a re-release of the single in 1974, on the UK record label, peaked at No. 5.

The song also topped the music charts in at least seven nations, including Australia (Kent Music Report, two weeks), Canada (RPM Magazine, one week), and Germany (Media Control Charts, 13 weeks in 1973–1974).
