"You Came" is the second single from the album Close by Kim Wilde. The song was written by Wilde and Ricky Wilde, after the birth of his first child, Marty.

The single became one of the biggest hits of Wilde's career, peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart and reaching the top 10 in several other European countries, including Denmark, where it reached number one for five weeks. In the United States, it was her fourth (and to date final) single to reach the top 50, peaking at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The song was released during the summer of 1988, while Wilde was supporting Michael Jackson on the European leg of his Bad tour (the video for "You Came" showed material from the concerts as well as backstage footage). With the Close album becoming a best-seller, this was arguably the point where Wilde was at the pinnacle of her career as "You Came" reached the top ten in charts all over the world.

It has sold 393,000 copies in France.[1]

Remixes and B-sides[edit]

The version of the song used for the 7" single in Europe and Australia was an edited version of the original found on the Close album. An extended version was also released on the 12" and CD-single format.

In North America, a remix by Shep Pettibone was found on both formats, with an edited version on the 7" and two different dub versions (only available on the 12" format). The full length Pettibone remix was also released on a separate 12" single in Europe.

In the countries where "You Came" was the first Close single (namely North America and France), the B-side used was an exclusive non-album track called "Tell Me Where You Are," which in the rest of the world had been the B-side to the first Close single "Hey Mister Heartache". In these countries the B-side to "You Came" was a track from the album entitled "Stone."
