About I Want You Back

"I Want You Back" is a song written and recorded by English girl group Bananarama. It is included on their fourth studio album Wow! and was released as its fourth and final single. The track was co-written and produced by the Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) trio. The song originally had a different chorus and was titled "Reason for Living". Bananarama disliked this chorus and co-wrote the revised lyrics for "I Want You Back". Both versions were originally recorded with Siobhan Fahey for the 1987 Wow! album. For the April 1988 single release, the song was re-recorded with Jacquie O'Sullivan, who had replaced Fahey in March 1988."Reason for Living" was included on the deluxe version of Wow!, which was released in 2013. Elements of the original chorus can be heard in both the original Wow! version of "I Want You Back" and in the Extended European Mix of the 1988 single release."I Want You Back" became one of Bananarama's highest-charting hits, peaking at number five on the UK Singles Chart. It also climbed into the top three in Australia and the top ten in New Zealand. The single was not released in the United States.

The room has suddenly grown cold
And outside in the street it's raining
You packed your bags and said good-bye
You took my heart without explaining.
How could you go
How could you go
We had a love most people never know.
Stop
Before you break my heart.

[Chorus]
I want you back
Don't care what I have to do
I want you back

I want you back
Gotta get it through to you
I want you back

If I can make you see only you can fill the need in me

If you walk away you'll regret it someday
Please
Stay!

This room is full of memories
And shadows of the past remind me
Of all the love I gave in vain
And all the hurt I feel inside me.
I want you back
I want you back
We had a love most people never know.
Stop
Before you break my heart.

[Chorus]

I want you back
I
I want you back

I want you back
I
I want you
I want you back!
We had a love most people never know
Stop
Before you break my heart.

[Chorus]

Bananarama

Bananarama are an English female pop band who have had success on the pop and dance charts since 1982. Rather than relying on harmony, the band generally sings in unison, as do their background vocalists. Although there have been line-up changes, the group enjoyed most success as a trio made up of lifelong friends Siobhan Fahey, Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin. In The 1980s, Bananarama were listed in the Guinness World Records as the all female group with the most chart entries in the world, a record which they still hold. Since 1992, Woodward and Dallin have continued Bananarama as a Duo. more »
