Retro Video of the Day - I Want You To Want Me

Okay here's the deal - more often than not Mondays kind of suck for various reasons and to varying degrees. What's needed is a happy, go lucky feel good song with no strings attached to help either jump start your day or to give you the extra push to help you survive the next few hours until quitting time. Allow me to help.

Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me" was a song from their second album, Colors, released in 1977 but failed to chart in the U.S. It did however reach #1 in Japan along with a few other of their songs prompting them to perform a few concerts at the Buddakan in Tokyo which they ended up recording and releasing as a live album. The live version of "I Want You To Want Me" went Gold and finally broke the top 10 in the U.S. reaching #7 on BillBoard's Hot 100 in 1979 - two years after it's initial release.
