"You Needed Me"

is a popular song written by Randy Goodrum. It was a number one single in the United States during 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. Curiously, although the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, it reached only the top five on the two Billboard charts where Murray had the most success - Country and Adult Contemporary.

"You Needed Me" was also Murray's biggest hit in the United Kingdom, where it reached #22.
A 1999 cover version by Boyzone was released. The single famously beat former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell's debut solo single "Look At Me" to number one on the UK Singles Chart.
