"You Make Me Feel So Good" is the third single released by the American synthpop band Book of Love. The song was included on the band's eponymous debut album Book of Love in 1986. The song was written by band members Susan Ottaviano and Ted Ottaviano.[1]

Although "You Make Me Feel So Good" failed to reach the Billboard Hot 100 chart, it became Book of Love's first CHR radio hit.[2] The song was remixed for the single by Jellybean and Ivan Ivan.[3][4] For the 12" single, album track "Lost Souls" was remixed and extended by Mark Kamins.[3] Also appearing on the 12" single is the 'Full Bloom Version' of "I Touch Roses" which was remixed by Depeche Mode producer and Mute Records founder, Daniel Miller.[3]

A video was filmed for "You Make Me Feel So Good" and released to promote the album. (See External links for video)
