"I'm in Love" is a song written by Bobby Womack in the 1960s in response to some of the criticism he had been receiving after marrying the widow of the recently deceased Sam Cooke. The song was given to Wilson Pickett and his version became a top-ten R&B hit on Billboard's chart in 1968, peaking at number four as well as peaking at number forty-five on the Billboard Hot 100. However, the version to achieve the most success came in 1974, when Aretha Franklin released it as a single. Her version topped Billboard's R&B chart for two weeks and also peaked at number nineteen on the Billboard Hot 100. Wilson Pickett's version is most recently used as the back-track for Nature of the Beast's "When it's Good". Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers covered the song in concert in the early 1980s, and a version is featured on their set The Live Anthology. Womack himself recorded his version of the song in 1968 shortly after Pickett's version was released.
