"When You're Looking Like That" is a song by Irish boy band Westlife from their second studio album, Coast to Coast (2000). It was released on 19 September 2001 as the sixth and final single from the album in Australia, Asia, Latin America, and—most notably—Europe.

However, although being one of the more popular tracks in the UK and a music video being played regularly on UK music channels, the single was not released in the UK or Ireland and charted outside of top 100 in UK Singles Chart due to leakage only. It was re-released in 2001 with its single remix included on the group's third studio album World of Our Own (2001).

A Spanish version of the song, titled "Con Lo Bien Que Te Ves" has also been recorded and can be found on their Asian-only release, Released.[1] The Spanish lyrics was written by Rudy Pérez.

"When You're Looking Like That" was most successful in Sweden, where it peaked at number nine. It has since been certified gold by International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) for shipments of 15,000 copies in Sweden.


The song was written by a team of Swedish songwriters, Rami Yacoub, Andreas Carlsson, and Max Martin, and it was produced by Yacoub.

"When You're Looking Like That" along with "I Lay My Love on You" were not released in the UK. In an interview with Westlife, Mark Feehily said that the main reason behind it was because they've been on the UK very much. They realize that there are places in the world that they haven't reach such as Asia and Australia.[2]
