""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. The song, a ballad done in the band's signature mellow style, was released in December 1986, as the second single from the album The Touch. "You've Got" the Touch was 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".
