About You Should Hear How She Talks About You

"You Should Hear How She Talks About You" is a song performed by American singer Melissa Manchester from her album Hey Ricky. First recorded by Charlie Dore for her 1981 Listen! album, "You Should Hear How She Talks About You" was written by Dean Pitchford and Tom Snow. According to lyricist Pitchford, the song's lyrical concept was borrowed from "She Loves You" by the Beatles: "the idea of somebody reporting to somebody else on hearing this girl's in love with you, or this boy's in love with you. " Pitchford and Snow had had that idea in mind for some time; then when Snow first played for Pitchford a new tune which had come to him, Pitchford felt: "this [could] be the song where we write our modern day 'She Loves You.'" Pitchford came up with the main hook line as "You should hear the way she talks about you" which Snow amended to "You should hear how she talks about you". Arif Mardin who produced Manchester's recording described the track as "a real departure for Melissa because it has a new wave dance quality and she had been known for her ballads", Manchester having reached the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100 with the ballads "Midnight Blue" (#6) and "Don't Cry Out Loud" (#10) and the previous Manchester/Mardin collaboration "Theme from Ice Castles" also being a ballad. Mardin continued: "But music is music. You can't turn your back on new formats or styles." A 1985 interview with Manchester would state that the singer "had to be dragged kicking and screaming into [the] studio to record...'You Should Hear How She Talks About You'.""You Should Hear How She Talks About You" reached #5 on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100 in September 1982 to become Manchester's highest charting record. On the Cash Box chart, it spent six weeks at #4. The success enabled the song to rank at #18 on the Hot 100's year-end chart for 1982. The song would also prove to be Manchester's last Top 40 hit (her 1983 single "Nice Girls" would peak at #42). Also, it peaked at #10 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #8 on the dance chart. The track would earn Manchester the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for the year 1982, besting nominated performances by superstars Linda Ronstadt and Olivia Newton-John as well as Juice Newton and Laura Branigan. Manchester had previously been nominated in that category for her 1979 Top 10 hit "Don't Cry Out Loud."

You Should Hear How She Talks About You
Melissa Manchester
Tom Snow/Dean Pitchford

She's so very nice you should break the ice
Let her know that she's on your mind
Whatcha tryin' to hide when you know inside
She's the best thing you'll ever find?
Ahh, can't you see it?
Don't you think she's feeling the same?
Ahh, I guarantee it,
She's the one that's calling your name

CHORUS:
You should hear how she talks about you,
You should hear what she says
She says she would be lost without you,
She's half out of her head (out of her head)
You should hear how she talks about you,
She just can't get enough.
She says she would be lost without you,
She is really in love.

(spoken) She's in love with you boy

I ain't tellin' tales, anybody else
Could repeat the things that I've heard
She's been talkin' sweet and it's on the street
How our girlfriend's spreadin' the word

Ahh, you should hurry,
You should let her know how you feel
Ahh, now don't you worry
If you're scared this love is for real

You should hear how she talks about you,
You should hear what she says
She says she would be lost without you,
She's half out of her head (out of her head)
You should hear how she talks about you,
She is really in love
(She is really in love)

Ahh, you should hurry
You should let her know how you feel
Ahh, now don't you worry
If you're scared this love is for real

CHORUS

Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk

Can'tcha see? (Can'tcha see?)
It's me!

CHORUS
