You Needed Me By Anne Murray - 1978



"You Needed Me" is a song written by Randy Goodrum, who describes it as being about "unconditional undeserved love." It was a number one single in the United States in 1978 for Canadian singer Anne Murray. The song, included on her 1978 album Let's Keep It That Way, was also a top-five country single and won Song of the Year at the Academy of Country Music awards. Although the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (and is her only song to top that chart), it never topped the two Billboard charts where Murray has had the most success -- Country and Adult Contemporary. The song earned Murray the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 21st Grammy Awards, the first to be awarded to a Canadian artist.
