"Talkin' 'Bout You" is a song written by Ray Charles.

In 1964, The Animals covered it. The 7-minute recording was cut down and appeared on their hit single "The House of the Rising Sun" with a running time of only 1:54. On the 1990 compilation, The Complete Animals, the full version was released. This version was essentially a medley with Shout by The Isley Brothers.

It was also covered by Dianne Schuur, Jerry Garcia and the French singer Johnny Hallyday (Qui aurait dit ça) 1962 (R. Charles / adapt G. Vesta).
