when i need you
leo sayer – 1977
for once, a ditty not written by leo sayer, but amazing because he performed it. a little history. the original version, written by albert hammond and carole bayer sager, was released as the title track of hammond’s album of the same name. sayer’s version reached number one in the uk. impressive, n’est pas?
of course, when i need you has been covered by various other artists, most notably Celine Dion, but with pretty limited success.
annnnnd that’s all i have to say about that.
