I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick

This is Rock the Rocktober Week at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll. The song of the day for Thursday, October 18, 2012 is 'I Want You to Want Me' by Cheap Trick. This is the live version from Cheap Trick at Budokan that was 1979 hit.

There are a few songs out there in the rock and roll universe that are better live than the studio version. 'I Want You to Want Me' is one of the best examples, and click here to listen to the studio version from the 1977 album, In Color. The In Color version is too light and fluffy, while the Budokan version is totally fantastic. A crowd full of screaming Japanese girls does add a nice touch to the greatness of the live version of this song. Click below to watch and enjoy.
