"I Still Can't Get Over Loving You" is a 1983 song written and performed by Ray Parker, Jr.. It was the lead single from his Woman Out of Control album of the same year, and it reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1984.[1] It was Parker's fifth Top 20 hit, the sixth being 1984's "Ghostbusters".[1]

The song is an up-tempo ballad with electronic instruments.[2] The lyrics are about lost love, with close similarities to The Police's "Every Breath You Take", at one point even borrowing the lines "Every breath you take, I'll be watching you."[2]

"I Still Can't Get Over Loving You" ranked number 77 on Billboard‍ '​s Year-End Hot 100 singles of 1984.
