"When You Walk in the Room" is a song written and recorded by Jackie DeShannon, released as a single on November 23, 1963 as the B-Side to "Till You Say You'll Be Mine".
It was re-released as an A-side in September 1964, and later included on the album Breakin' It Up on the Beatles Tour. The single charted on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #99. The song has since been covered by many other artists.
The song's lyrics attempt to detail the singer's emotions when in the presence of the person he or she loves. There is also an expression of frustration by the singer that he or she cannot manage to tell that person of his or her love.
Former ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog released her version of "When You Walk in the Room" as the second single from her 2004 album, My Colouring Book. The track peaked at #11 in Sweden and #34 in the UK, where it remained in the chart for only two weeks. It was remixed by Almighty and SoundFactory.
