The notion "I Need You" is an oft-repeated theme in pop music. I believe that each of these 5 songs (not covers of the same song; each is unique!) were either in my or my brother's record collection when we were kids. I happen to like them all, which makes it hard to rate them, but here goes:
Number 5 - The Beatles
Number 4 - America
Number 3 - Paul Revere & the Raiders
Number 2 - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Number 1 - The Who
If any reader cares to make me aware of glaring omissions (perhaps more modern ones?) from this list, please feel free to do so!
