""You've Got" the Touch" is a song written by Lisa Palas, John Jarrard and Will Robinson, and recorded by American country music band Alabama. It released in December 1986 as the second from the album The Touch. The song — a ballad done in the band's signature mellow style — became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in April 1987.
The song was Alabama's 21st — and as it turned out, final consecutive — chart-topper in a string that dated from August 1980's "Tennessee River". The follow-up single, the semi-autobiographical "Tar Top," peaked at number seven that November, breaking the streak. A new streak would be started in early 1988 with the song "Face to Face".
