‘You Needed Me’ by Anne Murray – Classic Hit or Miss

“You Needed Me” was  written by Randy Goodrum, and 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, it never topped the two Billboard charts where Murray had the most success – Country and Adult Contemporary. The song won Murray the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 21st Grammy Awards,the first to be awarded to a Canadian artist.Anne Murray re-recorded the song with Shania Twain for Murray’s 2007 album Duets: Friends & Legends.

The song was featured in an ongoing storyline on the CBS soap Guiding Light in 1980-81, as a theme song for the characters Kelly Nelson and Morgan Richards.
