"Show Me Love" is a song by Swedish singer and songwriter Robyn. It was released in October 1997 as a single from her debut studio album, Robyn Is Here. The song is her fourth Swedish, third UK and second US single. The song is sometimes confused with Robin S.'s 1993 hit "Show Me Love" because of identical song titles and similar first names; however, the two songs are not related.[1]

History[edit]

In her home country, "Show Me Love" became Robyn's fourth hit, peaking at number 14, lower than "Do You Know (What It Takes)" and "Do You Really Want Me (Show Respect)", which both went top 10.

In the US, the single peaked at number seven, her second consecutive top 10 hit. In the UK, "Show Me Love" became Robyn's first of two top 20 hits from Robyn Is Here and her first top 10 hit, peaking at number eight. In December 1997 the single received a Gold certification from the RIAA in recognition of 500,000 copies sold in the US.[2] It was Robyn's last top 10 and remains her last charting single on the Hot 100 to date. In United Kingdom it is Robyn’s fourth biggest hit, with 113,000 sales and 1.22 million audio streams. [3]

The song was performed in 1997 on the television series All That and features on the soundtrack of TV series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. It was also played at the very end of the Swedish film Show Me Love (1998). The film was originally titled Fucking Åmål but was retitled for distribution in the English-speaking world after the name of the song.

In 2008, a re-recorded version of the song appeared on the special edition of Robyn's eponymous album.
