Today, for SLS, we have the words ‘did/didn’t/do/don’t/does/doesn’t’. Lots of songs with some version of these to choose from. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this fun weekly musical challenge, the details are found at the above link. See other entries, also. 🙂

From the Wiki article:

“‘I Want You To Want Me’ was a fabulous dancehall type of song, and a perfect pop tune, and it was meant to be a little campy.

The studio version features guitar by Jay Graydon.[8] The live version has a higher tempo than the album version, which contributed to its success. However, the album version features an echo at the verse “Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’ (cryin)”. This echo does not appear in the live version. The crowd, however, emulates the echo by chanting “cryin'”.

In this video, where Cheap Trick is performing live on the Howard Stern show, there is a one minute interview about how the song came to be.

“I Want You to Want Me’, by Cheap Trick, appears on their 1977 album, “In Color”. It was written by Rick Nielson, and is on the Epic label.

I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I’d love you to love me.
I’m beggin’ 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 cryin’?
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Feelin’ all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin’.
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?

I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I’d love you to love me.
I’m beggin’ you to beg 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 cryin’?
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Feelin’ all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin’.
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Feelin’ all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin’.
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?

I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I’d love you to love me.
I’m beggin’ you to beg me.
I want you to want me.
I want you to want me.
I want you to want me.
I want you to want me.
