"I'm Lost" is a song written by Otis René and recorded in 1944 by Benny Carter and His Orchestra. The single, with vocals by Dick Gray, went to number one on the Harlem Hit Parade and was his most successful of three entries on the Harlem Hit Parade list.[1] Unlike his previous releases, "I'm Lost" did not cross over to the mainstream pop charts. The song was also a hit for the King Cole Trio, and has been recorded by Carmen McRae, among others.[2]
