I Want You To Want Me

"I Want You to Want Me" is a song by American rock band Cheap Trick. The song first appeared on their second album In Color in 1977 and was the first single released from that album, but it did not chart in the US. However, it was a number-one single in Japan. Its success in Japan, as well as the success of its preceding single "Clock Strikes Ten" and its followup "Surrender", paved the way for Cheap Trick's famous concerts at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo in April 1978 that were recorded for the group's most popular album, Cheap Trick at Budokan. A live version of "I Want You to Want Me" from the album Cheap Trick at Budokan was released in 1979 and became their biggest selling single, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, representing sales of one million records. In Canada, it reached #2 in on the RPM national singles chart, remaining there for two weeks. It was also the band's highest charting single in Britain, where it reached #29.

The single was certified Gold in Canada for the sale of 5,000 singles in September 1979.
