"You're Getting to Me Again" is a 1984 single written by Pat McManus and Woody Bomar and recorded by Jim Glaser. It was included on his album The Man in the Mirror, from which it was released as the fifth single. In September 1984, the song became his only No. 1 hit on the Hot Country Singles charts, holding that position for one week, and spending twenty one weeks on this chart.[1] The song peaked at number three on the Canadian country music charts published by RPM.[2]

When "You're Getting to Me Again" reached No. 1, Glaser accomplished something that he failed to do with his better-known brother, Tompall. Jim had recorded as part of the trio Tompall and the Glaser Brothers (Chuck Glaser was part of the group as well), and the closest any of their hits came to the top was 1981's "Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)," stopping at No. 2 that July.

A video was produced for "You're Getting to Me Again," and was aired on The Nashville Network, CMT and Great American Country.
