"Calling You" is a song by Blue October. It was initially released in 2003, on the album History for Sale, peaking at number 35 on the Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks chart. It later gained a resurgence of popularity and radio play after it was included on the American Wedding soundtrack. It was, for a time, the group's largest mainstream hit until "Hate Me" peaked at number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006.
According to the band, "Calling You" is a fan favorite.
The original release of the music video documents the story of an astronaut (played by Justin Furstenfeld), singing of his girlfriend or wife back home on Earth. Later on, shots of the band performing on a screen back at mission control are interspersed with clips of the capsule returning to Earth.
In 2007 a new video directed by Jeff Richter was released.
An acoustic version of "Calling You" appears at 10:04 of "Amazing" on the History for Sale album.
In the intro to the song "Hate Me" from the album Foiled, before the mother starts talking, girls can be heard singing a portion of the chorus from this song, and two lines are spoken in the chorus of "X-Amount of Words".
